Design Stefano Giovannoni with Rumiko Takeda. In collaboration with the National Palace Museum of Taiwan, 2006. Bone china, hand decorated. Made by Alessi. The National Palace Museum of Taiwan can be considered the Louvre of the Orient for the richness and scope of its collections. Its holdings originate from the imperial collections of the Ch'ing dynasty, and the earlier Sung, Yuan and Ming dynasties, and constitute the central core of Chinese culture and art. The collaboration between Alessi and the NPM of Taiwan grew out of the museum's wish to encourage greater awareness of Chinese history and culture in the West.
