What a cool find ... Mikasa Elegance Collection Artic Animals

jeannespinesDecember 18, 2013

Wow ... Our good friend here on the Holiday forum found this gorgeous piece for me when I oooo'ed & awe'd over her Santa Mikasa Elegance collection!

Right now I set it on the Pfalzgraff Winterfrost tray with my dishes...isn't it just beautiful...love all the animals. My Winterfrost collection has the 'polar bear' as part of the design inside the bowls.

I LOVE this Mikasa piece that PM found! I'm thinking of displaying it separately on a cake plate w/snow & a few small glass ornaments...but right now it is here.

If you missed Purplemoon's post of her collection, I'll add the link.

Still smiling, Jeanne S.

It arrived and is beautiful with your dishes. I like the idea of putting it under a cake plate too if it's small enough to fit. Will b fun to c what u come up with.

The base is too big for my large glass dome ... but it would fit on the cake plate itself so I may change it out from my Winterfrost dessert goblets.

Karen, the snowman I talked about is NOT Mikasa ... I always think it is when I see a pic of your collections. It's Lefton (1997) ... a music box (Larry had to work on it a bit) ... I bought it @a garage sale a few yrs. back. ;-) Here it is decorated up today ...on the cedar chest in the spare room.

I can see that you and Karen have become the White Christmas Snow Queens with your Mikasa Elegance pieces. And, I might add, you have a pretty good size piece there.

I, too, can see it under glass, but can't imagine that I own a dome big enough to cover it.

So beautiful!

Such a wonderful piece, Jeanne.
It looks great where it is.
It would look neat under glass too.

Jeanne..what a beautiful piece.
I like the way you have it displayed now.
A large - wide cake dome would look nice too.
Don't know if this would work for you, but I've used plates that dipped in the center and curved up on the outer edges. This would elevate the dome some, so I could fit a taller piece under it.
Just a thought.
