Rosenthal - Year of the Rat Zodiac Plate/Design: iSHONi

Curious, intelligent, careful: As the first animal in the Chinese zodiac, the rat is a true hedonist. With tremendous energy, it is able to fully embrace the kindness of fate in any situation. Once on the right path, this rodent will never let go of the golden key to happiness. As this year's zodiac plate from the #design company #iSHONi shows, the rat is even able to turn simple rice grains into pure gold, by conjuring up delicious rice cakes that traditionally bring good luck and prosperity for the New Year. Surrounded by golden ears of wheat, the rim of the plate combines Chinese and Celtic symbols of fortune. The strong red shade of the rim, which is the colour of life in China and is known for its lucky qualities, impressively contrasts with the soft turquoise of the rest of the plate. Once again Zodiac collectors can also look forward to a service plate and a cup.
