Celebrating the hands that built our nation as one
In celebration of Singapore’s 50 years of Independence, Landex is proud to collaborate with local tableware manufacturer, Luzerne to unveil this exclusive masterpiece - the Golden Jubilee Platter by Lu Collectibles.
Available in a limited collection of 100 sets, the Golden Jubilee Platter features master watercolour artist, Ng Woon Lam's painting depicting how Singapore evolved from a small fishing and trading village to one of the world’s most influential city. It illustrates how Singapore improved over the years to what we have presently - our public transportation system, the fourth largest financial centre in the world and one of the largest and busiest port in the world. Mr Ng drew inspiration from the country’s cityscape and iconic symbols such as Raffles Hotel, Merlion, Singapore Flyer, the Central Business District and Esplanade.
The 50cm platter is extraordinarily lightweight, weighing less than 2.3kg. Each plate is specially crafted and fired four times at extremely high temperature to produce its smooth, flawless glaze and refined translucency. To preserve the quality of the watercolour painting, it is fired as an in-glaze decal so it is more durable and the colours will stay rich and vibrant for generations to follow.
Each set includes a wooden plate stand, in a premium leather box and luxury sleeve. The Golden Jubilee Platter is available at S$2,688 and all proceeds will be donated to charity. In line with this launch, Landex has also reproduced the painting on a 30cm show plate retailing for S$368.
