Day 592's quest

I was doing a little Google Image searching this morning (though now I can't remember what I was looking for!) and came across this lovely image in a story on open shelving on Habitually Chic. Since I bought the little black pitcher at Scott's last month, I've been trying to find out more about it -- it's unmarked -- and looking for similar pieces online. I haven't come up with much, which is why this little collection caught my eye. They appear to have the same chalky (Eddie Ross called it "basalt") finish as my little pitcher, so I emailed Heather in the hopes that she will know a little more about the image so I can get my hands on some resourcing information. Fingers crossed!

UPDATE: Heather says the photo is from the Elle Decor spread on fashion designer Michael Leva. The caption notes that the black dishes are Wedgwood basaltware from the 18th century. Thanks, Heather!

I don't have any knowledge on the black dishware, but it is beautiful. I love it grouped together. I love Heather has an answer for you!
