Only the finest china for the G20

China Daily (USA) - - ACROSS AMERICAS -

All din­ner­ware for of­fi­cial ban­quets dur­ing the G20 Sum­mit was made of the best bone china, dec­o­rated with iconic Chi­nese mo­tifs in­clud­ing Hangzhou’s sig­na­ture scenery and cul­tural sym­bols.

Hangzhou, the host venue, is well-known for its pic­turesque West Lake and associated bridges, and the din­ner­ware’s shape and de­sign re­flect these.

The han­dles on many pieces are shaped to look like bridges, re­flect­ing the theme of the sum­mit— bridges connecting an in­no­va­tive, in­vig­o­rated and in­clu­sive world.

The de­signs, mean­while, were in­spired by iconic scenes of West Lake and clas­sic Chi­nese cul­tural mo­tifs such as lo­tus flow­ers and seed­pods.
