Hungarian China Arrives Late to White House Party PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 15 January 2009
It is with great pride that Index.hu reports that the new dinner service delivered to the White House on January 7 was designed and painted at the workshop of Hungarian-born and -based sometime American artist Anna Weatherley.

The 70-person (!!) set, officially handed over on January 7, and was inspired by the magnolia trees standing in the park of the White House, and by the butterflies and beetles in the garden. The set was ordered by Laura Bush, but, in true Hungarian traditions perhaps, it has only just been finished as George Bush's reign of destruction comes to an end. That's probably for the best given that it cost a cool $74,000.

And while the soon-to-be-former first lady presented the new china set proclaiming Weatherley's life was an all-American success story, tabloid Blikk has learned that the person who actually painted the china is a freelance artist from Hollóháza. The young man was reportedly too shy to give a detailed interview, but he did say it took him one a full day to decorate each piece of the china set, even though he didn't know at the time where the dinnerware would be used. Like most Hungarians, he would no doubt prefer if it went to the sort-of black guy and not the sort-of dumb guy.
