The 3-piece fine bone china Giselle set is a true work of art! Its creator, artist Lubov Tsvetkova is a multi-talented professional, equally great at painting porcelain tableware, as well as porcelain sculptures. Tsvetkova is working at reviving some of the great traditions of the Russian Imperial porcelain, such as the XVIII century technique, called "leaf-to-leaf," using the absolutely unique in its whiteness and plasticity bone china mass. It is truly difficult to imagine anyone more worthy of working with the theme of the world-famous "Giselle" ballet, than Lubov Tsvetkova.
Giselle is a ballet performed first
at the Ballet du Theatre del’Academie
Royale de Musiquein Paris in 1841
with Italian ballerinaCarlotta Grisi.
The ballet is about a peasant girl
named Giselle, who dies of a broken
heart after discovering her lover is
betrothed to another. The Wilis, a group
of witches who dance men to death,
summon Giselle from her grave.
They target her lover for death, but
Giselle's great love frees him
from their grasp.
