CRANBURY, N.J.–For the first time in its more than 87 year history, tabletop company Mottahedeh has leased a 440 square-foot venue at The New York International Gift Fair next month. The company, known for its high-fired porcelains in historical patterns, museum reproductions and prestigious licensing agreements, will showcase its tableware, decorative accessories and giftware.
“Mottahedeh has a unique niche in the marketplace,” said CEO Wendy Kvalheim. “We decided to exhibit at the Gift Show with a goal of reaching a new, diverse audience. We are immensely proud of what Mottahedeh stands for as a company and of what we have achieved in our long history, and we continue to bring fresh new designs to each market. We have always made the finest products and we are well known as a leader in design. We strive to realize our goal of bringing our concepts to a new generation of devoted Mottahedeh collectors.”
Recognized for its reproductions of Chinese export patterns, the Mottahedeh booth at the Jacob K. Javits Center will be topped by iconic pagoda roofs, reflecting many of its cobalt blue and white patterns. In addition, licensed museum reproductions from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Winterthur, Historic Charleston, Williamsburg, Mount Vernon and Monticello will be displayed in place settings and giftware. All will be available for immediate delivery.
