Still Life

Ceramics manufacturer Royal Tichelaar Makkum is the oldest company in the Netherlands. Discontented with producing old-fashioned Delftware, the 410-year-old house commissioned Antwerp-based Studio Job to design Still Life. The clock, money box, vase, box, and candlestick are hand-painted in a traditional blue-and-white palette, but their cartoonlike forms that make light of their precedents; $600-$2,150. www.tichelaar.nl
