Established in 1818, Pillivuyt has a world-famous reputation for making culinary porcelain that's both elegant and durable. Their robust pieces can go in the oven and microwave—at temperatures of up to 290°C (270°C fan)—and are safe in the dishwasher and freezer too. In fact you could take it from the freezer to the oven and it will not crack from the thermal shock—an extremely rare feature. The premium non-porous glaze gives it a lustrous finish that is resistant to chips and scratches, and makes clean-up much faster. All of this is a result of ancestral knowledge that's been passed down through generations of this family business, where 100% of the manufacturing is undertaken in France. This simple, understated breakfast cup (290ml capacity) and saucer (16cm diameter) set is ideal for medium-to-large mugs of tea, coffee or other hot drinks, as well as individual puddings.
Part of our Pillivuyt Seconds range—pieces that, due to minor flecks and recesses in the glaze, did not pass Pillivuyt's strict testing criteria. Since these purely cosmetic flaws have no effect on quality, we sell them at a discount of up to 40%.
Why we love it'It's a good thing white tableware never goes out of style—because a piece from Pillivuyt is durable enough to last many lifetimes.'
