4. Personal approach to every client
One of our greatest advantages is the personal approach to each client. It is extremely important for us to speak to you and to understand what you would like. This is our guideline for our work. We would like to know what kind of person the gift is for, what the occasion is, is it a man or a woman, what is their age, occupation, what they like, what their favourite colour is, what their home or office looks like etc. The more information you give us, the better and more impressive the present will be.

When you are not sure what to choose, we can help. Many clients decided to trust our long experience. Please do not hesitate to ask us about our work, the materials, the maintenance of the items and anything connected with them. We would be happy to hear from you and reply.
If you choose several items, but want them to be put together as a set, we could make a luxury box for them.
To some of the products, our clients might add a bottle of wine, brandy, whiskey, etc. You can order the additional accessories through us or deliver them to our studio so we can make the box to size.
Your gift will impress!
7. Plaques and engraving
When you give a gift, it is a good idea to have it personalised by including a message from you for the recipient. In this way, you show your attitude towards the person and your gesture will be highly appreciated. You could prepare a short text that we can write on a metal plaque. It will be placed in the luxury box together with the selected dish. If you wish, we can manually engrave a name, date or other important symbols on the dish itself.
The receiver of your gift will be fascinated when they see that you have made such an effort for their celebration.
8. Choice of material, colour and more
