The Medusa series is one of the most extensive Rosenthal meets Versace collections and first made an appearance as a dinner service back in 1993. With this high quality décor the appearance of the porcelain or its artistic design are of main concern. The dishwasher safety rules play a deliberately subordinate part here. The use of high quality colours and their subtle application therefore forbid dishwasher cleaning. This décor was tested by the Rosenthal Institute for material technology (IWT). This porcelain must be washed only by hand. One of the first sets of the collection “Rosenthal meets Versace, the décor “Medusa by Gianni Versace on the form of the “Ikarus mirrors the matchless rich, color intensive world of Versace. Central eye-catcher of this collection is a glorious gold colored head of Medusa, an unmistakably Versace emblem, framed by expressive baroque ornaments. The centrally placed head of Medusa decorates all cups, pots, service and breakfast plates of the collection “Medusa. Varacious aristrocratic colors, bright red, precious gold and black with lavish delicate designs and ornaments give the head of Medusa a colorful elegant framework. The collection “Medusa consists of a complete dining and coffee set and many accessoires. Big breakfast cups for Cappucino and Café au Lait, pasta plates and cereal bowls complement the collection as well as precious, personal gift accessoires like napkin rings, candle holders, vases and a classy smokers-set. The two glass series “Medusa Lumière” and “Méandre”, as well as the cutlery collection “Medusa Gold, complete an elegant and colorful table culture in the unique world of Versace.
