Here are some examples from Magnolia Hall, but I think they're rather tasteless reproductions, lacking the grace of the originals.

Try Pierre Deux, Ebay has a few good things, and Brocade home has more modern and very well crafted pieces.

I don't think this is cheap but it is nice. The furniture is well white, however the design is nice you can also select another color. I know I like it. This is what I would have in mind when decorating my home. In order to get rococo for cheaper perhaps a flea market would be best. I'm not sure.

Here is a picture.

I don't think that all of the Magnolia Hall stuff was that bad; it was just in a modern room and not a rococo room. Some of it was definitely too Barbie-ish, but the curio cabinet was quite nice, I thought, and I'm sure that you could find a few more items that would do well in a properly decorated room.

Actually I like the Magnolia hall bed and dressing table, and the whole living room set. I think it is rather glamorous!..... In a Barbie sort of way :wink:

I don’t like the first picture, too much for me but the second is slightly better. However I don’t think I would ever decorate my house this way. :?

Some of the pictures are frankly just tacky

Expressly. But the second is lovely.

Hard to determine what in rococo is beautiful and what just tacky. Depends on the taste?

Here is one lovely 18th century table-
