This most popular pattern in casual dinnerware evokes a country fresh feel in this sunny and uplifting design. Creamy shades of buttery yellow and serene celadon unite the four decorated porcelain patterns in the collection. These colorful and provincial designs of fruits, lattice and flowers bring the allure of a french garden right into your home. As in all Villeroy & Boch dinnerware, French Garden is underglazed to give a soft and velvety feeling to the pieces and ensure many years of lasting beauty and durability. In addition, it is chip resistant, dishwasher, oven and microwave safe.
Designed to evoke the charm of a French garden, the Fleurence pattern from Villeroy & Boch captures the relaxed contentment found in the French countryside. Clusters of fruit and cherry blossoms, laurel leaf rings in deep green, and bands of soft country yellow and pale celadon all combine to bring the airy garden feel inside. Subtle ridges, textured layers, and other sculptural elements add a touch of sophistication, enabling the collection to be used daily or for special occasions.
A wonderful complement to the other tableware pieces in the French Garden line, this covered sugar bowl coordinates with the matching creamer, as well as the teapot and coffeepot. Measuring 3-1/2 inches in diameter, and standing 4-1/4 inches high, the sugar bowl rests on a small base and is decorated with lemons, cherries, plums, and apples, while laurel leaves ring the mouth of the vessel. A rounded finial, resembling a lemon, tops off the lid and is surrounded by four leaves sculpted in low relief. Crafted from vitrified porcelain to ensure durability, all Villeroy & Boch tableware pieces are resilient enough to be placed in the dishwasher and microwave. For added beauty, a top glaze has been applied to protect the vivid colors. --Lea Werbel
