A sweet treat
Be it a strong Darjeeling or coffee from the fine Arabica bean, for many people, it is the addition of sugar that makes hot drinks truly tasty compositions. White sugar, brown sugar or sugar cubes are served with coffee or tea in style in a sugar bowl from Villeroy & Boch. Made from high-quality porcelain, the sugar bowls add a touch of elegance to every coffee table, while their versatility perfectly underscores any style. Until the end of the 19th Century, sugar was traded as “white gold”; today, annual sugar consumption is around 30 kilograms per person. But the premium collections still transmit a touch of luxury when arranged with beautiful porcelain cups and plates in your very own style.
Stylish motifs and décors
Those with more traditional tastes will want to choose the white sugar bowl from the Cellini collection, which impresses with fine reliefs and classic shapes, to complete their set. Modern statements come in the form of the NewWave and Flow collections, whose curved lines bring a break in the style of the coffee table. The arrangement is more colourful, more rustic, yet still in line with the French country style, when you choose an attractive porcelain sugar bowl with a delicate flower pattern, fruits or landscapes. The matching lid prevents the contents from moisture and gives the porcelain bowls a traditional appearance. The look of the sugar bowls is in perfect harmony with the beautiful coffee pots and cups that stand on the table next to the classic marble cake.
Well-protected by a hard shell
Because porcelain is the ideal material for storing sugar, Villeroy & Boch has concentrated on the production of premium porcelain and premium bone porcelain for its lovingly-designed sugar bowls. Impact resistant and with strong rims, these materials are designed for daily use and can withstand years of service. Be it vanilla sugar enriched with a pod of bourbon vanilla or orange sugar laced with untreated orange peel, the combination of bowl and lid keeps even flavoured sugars protected for longer. Once the sweet treat has all been eaten, the dishwasher-safe porcelain sugar bowls can be cleaned in the dishwasher alongside the matching coffee cups and cake plates – so you can spend more time with your guests.
When the first sugar cubes were made in 1840, their inventor Jacob Christoph Rad could not have imagined that the form would still be being served on German coffee tables 150 years later. Sugar bowls and serving tongs are especially ideal for sugar cubes and rock sugar, helping to add exactly the right amount of sweetness to tea or coffee. The attractively-designed vessels do more than just provide space for various types of sugar – they also make a beautiful statement on the breakfast table when used to serve jams, preserves or honey. The fruit and berry motifs on the sugar bowls in the Cottage and French Garden collections are especially good for underscoring the sweetness of fruity spreads in the morning.
