Chart Canapés in Architectural Digest!
January 27th, 2016
AmericanMadeGifts.com is thrilled to see Architectural Digest‘s feature of our Nautical Chart Canapés in it’s January 2016 issue! Architectural Digest showcases that these beautiful Canapés belong in every well-appointed home. We recently added the Caskata Collection and its Chart Canapés to our assortment of unique gifts made in the USA!
This wonderful collection supports porcelain manufacturing in America. Decades ago, domestic porcelain manufacturing began to dwindle after companies started relying on imports from Asia. The number of professional potteries in America could be counted on just a single hand. Today, those few potteries are seeing steady growth. Therefore, a commitment to manufacturing porcelain here in the US is extraordinary. For these artists, “Made in America” is something very special. Pairing skill and artistry with the passion that goes into making each piece, “Made in America” becomes a compelling statement. We are proud to partner with companies that mutually support manufacturing in this country.
The Caskata Nautical Collection was inspired by charts. Charts are maps showing coastlines, water depths and other information useful to navigators. Nautical charts have unique characteristics including detailed depictions of coastlines. They take into account varying tidal levels and the area below the surface not visible to the naked eye that can mean life or death for those traveling by sea.
The Nautical Chart Canapés celebrate these plotted courses for navigators and coastal areas of the United States in three collectible sets showcasing the South Coast, the Mid-Atlantic Coast, and The New England Coast. They were designed with a functional and old world charm, making them an instant classic and the perfect gift for those with a love of history, charting, the sea or with unique, contemporary tastes.
The word canapés, of French origin, refers to small edibles that are usually decoratively arranged upon a thin slice of bread or cracker. Intended for small hors d’œuvres, these Canapés plates are great for samples, taste-testing, and, of course, cocktail hour! Not only are they a renewed take on the modern fashion but each Chart Canapé is begging to show off your favorite regional recipes.
