Just like the graceful arches of France’s Pont d’Avignon—the bridge that inspired this collection—our versatile new Avignon whiteware collection is stunning. The lightly arch-detailed edges impart a vintage heirloom feel that creates a beautiful table for occasions casual or formal.
Delicate in appearance, this ultra-durable, chip-resistant porcelain serving bowl provides a white backdrop to potatoes, vegetables and other side dishes. The Avignon collection coordinates with our Café Collection.
Care: Dishwasher safe; microwave and oven-safe to 392°F
I have never been a fan of white for my kitchen and steadfastly resisted any impulse to buy white dinnerware. Until now. I have happily become a ""convert"", and now own all of the pieces in the Avignon collection. They are wonderful for entertaining, or just serving a simple meal for my family. Though each piece is simple and eminently functional, the translucent, glossy finish and solid feel make it immediately evident that this is quality porcelain. The lovely arches around the border elevate them from purely practical to simple elegance. My hope is that Sur La Table will continue with the Avignon collection (perhaps adding additional pieces) and maybe even expand their offering of Turkish porcelain
