Between 1840 and 1850, the manufactory created GRECQUE as a coffee and tea-set in the contemporary style of Biedermeier. Having augmented the set by tableware, FÜRSTENBERG reintroduced the historical style form back into the collection in 1913. The multiangular shape with elaborately detailed ornamentations on handles, spouts and lid-knobs still has that very enticing romantic touch. The range is a development of Empire with classic elements. However, the polygonally divided surfaces lend the service pieces their typical small Biedermeier character.
