Opulence of Sonata

The Opulence of Sonata collection of fine porcelain tableware is the result of more than 100 years of expertise in production and design.

Our porcelain collection is called Opulence of Sonata for a reason. The title takes us to the era of classicism accompanied by the sound of a piano playing sonatas by great composers and innovators of the late 18th – early 19th centuries like Haydn and Mozart.

Exploring this period, our designers focused on the very meaning of the word “classicus”, which in Latin means “exemplary”. We tried to create an iconic, truly classical porcelain collection. The classical design was based on aesthetics that traced it roots back to antiquity, complying with clear logic and harmony. There is nothing irrelative and unsubstantiated in classical aesthetics. Both music and visual art are subject to strict canons. The musical sonata unfolds its melodies according to established rules, achieving rich figurative content embodied in a simple, yet perfect form.

While working on Opulence of Sonata, Leander manufactory set the same goal.

Classic and elegant, yet natural shapes combine perfectly with the floral motifs. Each item is richly decorated with 24-carat gold, as was customary at the courts during classicism era.

Opulence of Sabina

Simple forms are framed by luxurious and elaborate decorations. That is how the Sabina collection of fine porcelain and its variations created by LEANDER’S designers can be described. Initially, it was conceived as a simple porcelain tableware for everyday use. The modern and simple shape of the collection fully served the purpose.

However, the worldwide success of the Czech Sabina tableware imposed a need to give this favourite collection a rich finish to satisfy the desires of clients and aficionados of LEANDER porcelain.

Today, Sabina porcelain tableware is decorated not only with common decorations but also with beautiful rich gold or platinum ornaments in classical style. It’s amazing how the classic design displays new features in combination with a simple and contemporary shape, creating a one-of-a-kind product.

Sabina porcelain set with its luxurious varieties is a modern approach to the successes of the past. Creative department constantly redesigns the models so that they fit perfectly into the present day. Czech porcelain LEANDER is created to be ideal partner for apartments with a modern layout and design.

 

Classic Mary Anne

Classic Mary Anne collection stands for practicality, easy-to-use, and austerity without frills.

Several varieties of this collection are free of gilding, such as golden rims, which allows the safe use of the porcelain tableware in a microwave oven.

Many decors are designed in the country style, one of the most soulful and inclusive styles in design.

The country style itself appeared in the 1920s and originally had to emphasize the rural roots of the home environment. Since the 1950s and 1960s, this style has won the hearts of Americans, Europeans, and others with its functionality, simplicity and comfort. It is characterized by the use of natural colours and materials.

Wicker or wooden furniture, crocheted pillows, wooden or stone-lined floors, clothes from the flea market, live plants, and, of course, tableware as the final finishing touch.

Windsor

The Windsor collection of fine porcelain was inspired by English history and traditional English tea drinking.

The first mention of Windsor dates back to the 12th century. The name comes from the Old English words “Windles-ore”, which means “winch by the riverside”.

Windsor Castle has been the largest inhabited castle for over 900 years.

In 1664, King Charles received a gift of two pounds of precious Chinese tea. For centuries tea was unobtainable to the general population and was considered an exclusively royal drink.

The five-o’clock tea tradition was born thanks to Anna, Duchess of Bedford, who did not like the long break between lunch and dinner. The Duchess asked that tea with delicious pastries be served daily no later than 5 pm. Over time tea became a strong national tradition in England. Love for tea took the form of a meditation – British people relax from the hustle and bustle when they make a cup of fragrant tea.

English tea-time includes strong black tea, warmed milk or cream, sweet delicacies like cupcakes and pies, and, of course, special tea sets crafted from porcelain.

 

Victoria

Regular customers of the Czech manufactory Leander have long noticed that many of our porcelain collections bear female names. After all, it is women who bring love and beauty to the world, make our homes cozy and warm.

An elegant tea and coffee collection Victoria is no exception. We called it this beautiful female name inspired by the story of the most famous Victoria – the Queen of the United Kingdom with an amazing life.

Having inherited the throne at the age of 18, she did not become a toy in the hands of the powerful; on the contrary, she influenced government policy and became the ultimate national icon for the English people. In fact, the whole era was named after Victoria, it was the period of greatest prosperity for the British Empire, which ruled a quarter of the world.

Nothing mattered for the queen more than love for her husband, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, “her angel”, and she carried that love through her whole life.

In 1840, the royal wedding was held in London. Young Victoria married a man below her status who she loved dearly. This wedding was called “The wedding of the 19th century”. The Queen appeared in a snow-white dress, with a flower crown made of snow-white orange flowers and a long veil. This style gave rise to the triumphant procession of white in the wedding fashion.

Sonata

The Czech porcelain manufactory Leander proudly presents Sonata, one of its most famous collections.

It is based on and inspired by the Rococo style, born in France in the early 18th century as a development of the Baroque style. Rococo is characterized by sophistication and refinement.

All the art objects created in this style are very ornamental, with rich details and decorations.

During the Rococo era, considerable attentions was paid to personal comfort.

Back in the day, interiors of many palaces were created in the Rococo style. And even now, designers around the world use its characteristic features to create exquisite interior items.

The Czech manufacture Leander explored this style in 1926, and thus the Sonata collection of porcelain tableware was created.

Unlike the ponderous Baroque with its rich colours, Rococo in decorative objects stands out by its pastel hues.
