2014 LIMOGES - The Nantucket Mermaid
We are proud to introduce the 2014 Nantucket Limoges!
THE NANTUCKET MERMAID
This Limoges porcelain tabatiere, or tobacco box, is a reproduction of those popular French society in the middle of the XVIII Century. These tabatieres, small enough to be slipped into a man's pocket or a ladies' purse, were the most popular collectable of the day. Now, made in Limoges, France's historic porcelain center, these modern reproductions are still handmade and decorated by skilled craftsmen and are still being acquired by the knowledgable collector. 
The Nantucket Limoges Collection is a MUST for any lover of the island.  Each year we feature a brand new Limoges that reminds us of a Nantucket story, landmark or historical significance.
2014 brings us the Nantucket Mermaid with either blonde or brunette hair.  These island Mermaids sit atop a shell box which opens to reveal the beautiful and familiar scene of Brant Point Lighthouse. 
Inside the Limoges box you will find a bright and shiny new 2014 penny.  Tradition says we must throw a penny in the water as you pass by Brant Point Lighthouse on the ferry as you leave the island.  
The reason for throwing the penny varies by who you ask.  Some say that ensures a return to the island. Others say it provides good luck for a safe journey home. 
Make the Nantucket Mermaid "Part of Your World" by ordering here!
Celebrate 4th of July at Anderson's
Happy 4th of July Weekend from Anderson's of Nantucket!
We have got your Red, White & Blue at 29 Main Street.
We couldn't wait to show off a brand new Nantucket Limoges.  This Lobster in a Nantucket Pot is the perfect remembrance of a 4th of July Lobster Boil. 
or How about a little Christmas in July?
This Tilt Top Table is made by Michael, Marcia and William Kane.  The table is constructed of cherry wood and oak staves and the tight weave Michael is known for.  Dorothy Grant O'Hara did the acrylic painting of Brant Point Lighthouse with the rainbow fleet, featuring Cleopatra in the foreground.  The painting is sealed so the table can be used.  The table stands 47" with table tilted up, as shown in picture, 32" tall with the table flat and has a 28" diameter. 
This Nantucket Pill Box features an American Flag in one of our favorite skylines.

HAND BLOWN GLASS OCTOPUS

Anderson's is excited to feature the "Glass Octopus" this week on our Beach Chic Blog.

In a technique called "lamp or flame working," designer Jennifer Umphress works her magic and produces these beautiful works of art inspired by your favorite sea creature. 

 

Jennifer is originally from Kingston, Washington, but spent many years in Hawaii where she was always inspired by the sea.  These Glass Octopuses have won many Niche awards for their intricate, detailed and artistic design and the new colors are available here first on Nantucket Island at Anderson's.

 

This hand blown glass decor matches perfectly with our BLU fine china. Coined the Blue Lucy, this octopus inspired serving ware is the perfect nautical statement for your seaside tablescape. WE LOVE LUCY here at Anderson's.

 

Even our sister Store, THE HUB, has gotten into the Octopus spirit this week. This line of dinner ware is perfect for your outdoor picnics and cocktail parties. These plates are made of melamine, which makes them virtually unbreakable and perfect for beach picnics and patio parties…

 

We adore these tidbit toppers.
Have you ever felt that you need 8 tentacles at a cocktail party to hold your wine glass and a plate and a napkin. These tidbit toppers are designed to rest on top of your wine glass so you can eat, drink and socialize all at the same time. Genius for stress free entertaining.

Don't run, but swim your way down to Main Street this summer to check out all our Octopus products and decor at Anderson's and the Hub.

 

 

Not on island yet this summer? Supplies are limited so call to place your order!
