Xavier is a new bone china company manufacturer in England, selling to the global market.
Bone china was invented in England in 1790s and has a long history, through brands like Spode, Wedgwood, Minton etc.
Products will range from simple traditional plates to designs by famous artists, as well as bespoke wedding dinner services.
The ethos of the company is high quality on a medium budget, meeting a gap in the market between basic pottery (IKEA, OKA, John Lewis) and expensive hand painted porcelain (Meissen, Limoges etc).
The name 'Xavier' refers to: (1) 'new house': a new bone china business reviving a dying skill at the heart of English industrial and artistic history; a set of china for a new house - traditional wedding present; (2) François Xavier d'Entrecolles: a French Jesuit priest who copied the recipe for porcelain whilst working in China in 1712-22. He was the first to send the recipe back to Europe (see image: https://goo.gl/SGTdkw)
The business needs a traditional and sophisticated logo, but also one that is fresh and will appeal to multi-generational, international clients.
The logo will also need to be reduced to a recognisable 'stamp' for the back of the china i.e. a simple 'XV'. The traditional china houses such as Limoges, Spode, Wedgewood, Meissen, Herend could provide useful inspiration. Their logos have changed over the centuries but are relatively similar.
We are not committed to any colour at this time and are open to suggestions.
