Trend Spy: White + Gold Ceramics

White porcelain has been gold-dipped, gold-tipped, gold-topped, gold-toothed, gold-kissed, gold-striped and gold-dripped quite often these days. The white and gold combo -- which is fresh once again-- has roots that date much further back than Jeff Koon's 1988 Michael Jackson sculpture. Take the Sevres reproduction shown below. It's a farm vessel that was made for Marie Antoinette -- and legend has it that the bowl was fashioned from a cast of her breast.

Not all these pieces have quite as much history. But each one is pretty fascinating anyway.
