The Phoenician Flight collection from Franz Porcelain features vibrant shades of red and yellow. The collection is inspired by the legendary phoenix that lives 500 to 1,000 years--depending on the legend. The phoenix builds a nest and then ignites itself. Once burned, a young phoenix or phoenix egg rises from the ashes. The Franz porcelain is sculptured in such a way that you feel and see the motion of the bird in flight as you study each piece. The collection includes sculptured porcelain teapot, cup and saucer set, spoon, ornamental bowl and large tray. All tableware items from Franz Collection are food safe and functional for use.
