Imperial Porcelain Manufactory
Founded by the royal family in 1744, the china here is literally fit for a czar. The trademark Cobalt Net pattern, with 22-karat-gold filigree, was inspired by pieces owned by Catherine the Great; also look for 1930's avant-garde painter Kazimir Malevich's more modern designs (shipping is available for a hefty fee).
Created by the editors of T+L for Regent Seven Seas Cruises.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
