Anyway, in my morning travels today I somehow found myself at the virtual doorstep of Dinosaurs & Robots.
Displayed in their front window was this little gem from Neatorama
NYC Delft Porcelain
Then on closer inspection, Holy Sh*t!!!!!! A hot dog vendor's cart? Seriously?
"Rather than focus on the newest trend, we will seek authentic, handy, rarefied, disgusting, illuminating, delicious, mysterious, intoxicating, commonplace, historic, intensely personal, entertaining and enlightened objects, both priceless heirlooms and exquisite trash."
Yup - their tag says it all.
Back to that fine porcelain ware, can you imagine setting a quaint tablescape with a set of these dishes? Accompanied by grandma's finest silver, a few heirloom linens and fresh flowers, I bet most would sit down expecting to find a traditional setting from which to nibble their crumpets.
If your tour bus schedule allows, I highly recommend you pencil Dinosaurs & Robots in..
