Harmonious yet versatile
Although salad bowls and drinking vessels have been used for consuming food for centuries, plates – and consequently exquisite tableware – did not take their place in the European tableware of aristocratic houses until the 16th century. Nowadays, it's fashionable to set the table with matching crockery sets. The dessert plate matches the underplate, and the salad bowl has the same colours and shape as the serving plate. For a harmonious composition in the kitchen and dining room, set your table with attractive crockery from Villeroy & Boch which comes in many different collections and wonderful patterns. Thanks to the wide array of crockery in our range, the dishes, cups, egg cups, bowls and plates easily suit every taste and occasion.
From the serving dish to the snack plate
The attractive style of Villeroy & Boch's tableware becomes apparent even before the guests take their seats at the dining table with its decorative arrangement of underplates, dinner plates, soup bowls and pickle dishes. After all, already during the aperitif, the hors d’œuvres are passed round on lovely serving crockery made of gleaming premium bone porcelain. When family and friends pop over on a Sunday afternoon for a slice of poppy-seed cake and a café latte, delight them all with the appropriate cups and mugs for the occasion. Whether black coffee or Assam tea is preferred, Villeroy & Boch has the right coffee and tea set for every occasion. Of course, you'll carry the home-made cakes to the coffee table on the charming cake plate.
Quality in all materials
“The fact that Villeroy & Boch's roots lie in the manufacture of porcelain is demonstrated in its high-quality crockery, which owes its beauty and functionality to a meticulous production process. Selected coffee cups, beautifully designed flat plates and many other pieces of crockery are produced from premium bone porcelain with a beautiful shimmer that adds a gleaming note to every table setting. The crockery made from premium porcelain is particularly impressive with its high resistance to impacts and scratches which occur in everyday life. As most pieces in the tea sets are suitable for the dishwasher, cleaning is quickly dealt with. Professional glass makers are devoted to their craft too and obtain equally exclusive results with the dishes and salad bowls made of glass and crystal glass that can be effortlessly combined with the porcelain collection. Time to discover our Boston glass collection.”
