Yesterday, Sotheby's in New York mounted an exhibit of Royal Copenhagen's Hippopotamus Service, calling it "the single most important commissioned service of the last 100 years."
Fancy custom Hippo dishes

(From Boing Boing so I imagine briangee may have already shown it to you.)

PS- There is also the website of the woman what took the pictures and Hippolotofus - The International Hippo Society . monstersocks did not agree with some of the ways to say Hippo in other languages.

I visited that factory, which was cool, but damn those are expensive. Their stock line costs more than any other dishware I've ever seen, and I can't even imagine what a whole custom service runs. (I just skimmed the article to see if they listed the cost. Holy crap.)

I want the hippo dishes! "eight different hippopotomi in natural settings"? Bring it on! (I wonder if they would match our new gold service)
