Originally from Germany, Villeroy & Boch has been a leading name in Europe for tableware since 1748, and I have always been a great fan since I planned weddings in Italy.
Aureus is one of Villeroy & Boch’s latest tableware collections that could be a great addition to your gift registry. Fresh and youthful, it combines glittering opulence and modern style to energize casual and formal dining decors. A collection of place settings and versatile serveware, each fine bone china piece presents a crisp white center framed by wide aquamarine banding and one of several gold filigree patterns. Boldly accenting selected pieces, oversized flower blossoms float dreamily across the foreground in vivid hues of tangerine, sapphire, and fuchsia. The lovely design is cast on streamlined yet feminine shapes with a lighthearted and fashionable edge that makes a stunning statement at bridal showers, tea parties, and outdoor brunches. While it is not suitable for the microwave because of the gold accents, the pattern does go safely into the dishwasher.
