In the midst of February’s wintry chill, Saint Valentine’s Day symbolizes a respite of romantic radiance. The monochromatic palette of winter’s landscape is revitalized through the holiday’s vivacious reds and effervescent pinks. The cold climate is rebutted by the intimacy and warmth of the holiday’s sentiment. It is both ironic and emotional that the scarcity of winter’s reach is what compels couples to luxuriate in the spirit of Saint Valentine, as if to defy the isolation and poverty of the entire season itself. Therein lies the true beauty of this holiday, that after having nature’s vernal bounty stripped to the bone, we may still find ourselves selflessly giving to the ones we love. As such, selecting the right gift can sometimes feel overwhelming, but fortunately, Scully & Scully has a wide selection of beautiful Valentine’s Day gifts to perfectly express these indescribable feelings.
A highlight of this Saint Valentine’s Day collection, the china tableware and collectible figurines by the master porcelain artisans at Herend are essential additions for any home. For this Valentine’s Day 2022, we focus on the marvelous raspberry coloring which wonderfully communicates the romantic ideals of this holiday. Marvel at the intricate detailing imbued into the rouged floral patterns of the Herend Fortuna and Chinese Bouquet chinaware. Effective not just for Valentine’s, these table pieces also communicate a general opulence and vitality that may be equally at home for an Easter or Harvest Party setting. Of course, no discussion of Herend would be complete without mention of their priceless figurines. Featuring the iconic fish scale pattern, the Herend swan is both elegantly poised and studiously rendered, a delightful gift for first-time collectors and lifelong enthusiasts alike. Finally, there is perhaps no better depiction of Valentine’s Day then the interlocking ears of the Twisted Bunnies, beautifully symbolizing the affection of the holiday.
