Our middle daughter has a way of ferreting out treasures and her latest discovery is French pottery. Astier de Villate ceramics are handmade in Paris of black terra-cotta clay.
Anna got her first pieces of Astier crockery in Paris where they are made by Benoit Astier de Villatte. These charming ceramics are produced using techniques perfected before dishware was cast.
Aren't these charming? Can't you see what an interesting table could be set using these beauties?
Now when our daughter is in New York she often stops by the shop that carries these treasures and treats herself to a piece.
You can now buy this unique table service in Chicago at Tabula Tau, in San Francisco at Sue Fisher King and in Boston's South End at Patch NYC.
I would love to visit the flagship store on rue St. Honore in April. Paris is supposed to be splendid in the springtime!
