Centuries of trend-setting designs. Pillivuyt porcelain is internationally known for its exceptional quality and design. With the contributions of chefs and artists to the design process, form and function are perfectly combined to make this the most versatile, practical, and beautiful culinary porcelain in the international market today. Every piece of Pillivuyt porcelain is oven, microwave, freezer and dishwasher-safe.
These are the signature pieces that distinguished Pillivuyt porcelain as the first and finest culinary porcelain in the world. The "ears" are the delicate handles that are built into the shape of the dish. Like all Pillivuyt porcelain, these have many uses from baking to serving and are elegant enough to coordinate with any fine china dinnerware.
Pillivuyt’s lion’s head tureens hold a unique place in the international market with the use of skilled, highly trained craftsmen to make the finishing touches. For the largest tureen, the detailed carving of the foot must be done by hand. It takes years of practice to perfect this art and Pillivuyt’s tureens are the only ones in the world to be sculpted in this way. Another unique feature of these tureens is the manual application of the lion’s heads to the outside of the tureen before the final firing. This avoids the problematic indentation found on the inside of other manufacturers’ versions of this bowl – and creates a much more elegant and finely detailed look. Pillivuyt porcelain is fired at 2550 degrees Fahrenheit, so Pillivuyt dishes can go under the broiler, for a final browning or to add that finishing touch. Straight from the freezer to the oven or microwave, Pillivuyt porcelain won’t break! Pillivuyt porcelain is the finest culinary porcelain in the world. The 1.5 Cup, Lion's Head Tureen epitomizes Pillivuyt's exceptional quality and detail. Use this classic on the dinner table with your finest china.
