Spring has sprung with Tulipieres

Since Spring has sprung, I wanted to share some beautiful tulipieres and a little history. At the height of "tulip mania" in the mid 1600's when 1 tulip bulb cost as much as 1 oxen or 1,000 pounds of cheese, these delicate flowers could not be put in any vase. Holland's tulip fiends collaborated with Delft to produce what we know as the Tulipiere, an uber vase designed to show off a bunch of precious flowers to their best individual advantage...and so the tulipiere was born!

  1. Lilly, I want a Tulipiere and it's all your fault!!! Just for the pleasure of pronouncing it (très chic word) 'cause it's autumn down here and tulips cost quite a fortune. The Tulipiere, the Tea Box and my wish list after reading Haus and Home goes on and on :P Great Week mon ami! XoXo
