Earlier this year I had a pretty strong love affair with all things fruit and tropical related. I was running around like a mad man trying to find pieces to add to my wardrobe that included ‘pineapples’ ‘parrots’ or anything that resembled ‘paradise’! After a couple of hours searching I kept coming across these beautiful kitchen-ware pieces.
Upon reading a bit up on them it turns out they were created by Jascha Brojdo who went under the named Georges Briard to mark his ‘commercial’ pieces. His pieces were big in the 50s, 60s, and 70s and sold at places like Neiman Marcus and Bonwit Teller. His pieces are generally signed and come in a variety of kitchen and household items – you have probably seen his glasses/cups at some point at a thrift store or flea market you’ve been to.
Frankly I just loved the pineapples, (check out my sweet pineapple manicure I’m currently sporting!) and could EASLIY see me being one of those brides that requests to have all matching pieces for my registry! “Yes you have to go on etsy to see my registry!, do it! DO IT!!!..I must have all my precious!” ….okay you see I went a little crazy there.. But I am serious about my entertaining pieces I told you!
In closing, I will leave you with another bigger collection of Mr. Briard’s pieces for you to ogle over and possibly purchase – thanks to his extensive popularity on my favorite website (other than this one of course) Etsy!
