The facts about Villeroy & Boch French Garden

Villeroy and Boch was first known as "Jean-François Boch et Frère", founded in 1767 by Jean-François Boch. The company prospered, gaining a reputation for its earthenware. Rival Nicolas Villeroy began an earthenware company in 1789; he joined forces with Boch in 1836. Villeroy & Boch is still vibrant today. The French Garden is one of the company's popular earthenware patterns, consisting of four patterns in one. This article will provide you with facts on Villeroy & Boch French Garden.

Fleurence

Fleurence is one of the four sub-set Villeroy and Boch dinnerware patterns in the larger French Garden pattern. The plates consist of a centre of pale yellow with a leaf garland and summer fruits above. This portion of the French Garden pattern contains dinner plates, rice bowls and mugs. Other pieces can include bread and butter plates, salad plates, a coffee pot, a covered sugar bowl, a creamer, a gravy boat, oval platters (14 1/2 and 17 1/4 inches), tea cups and saucers, a pickle dish/gravy stand, a round platter, vegetable bowls (8 1/4 and 9 3/4 inches), a soup tureen, a tea pot, lasagne dishes (15 by 10 1./2 inches and 12 by 8 1/4 inches), a quiche dish, and a square baking dish.

Vienne

The French Garden Vienne pattern is plainer than the Fleurence pattern. It features a yellow rim with white centre, green edging and the leaf garland of the Fleurence pattern. This Villeroy and Boch tableware set consists of dinner plates, salad plates, bread and butter plates, and a rimmed soup dish. Two and three-tiered hostess tray, a mint tray, a titbit tray and a single-tier hostess tray are also available in this pattern.

Orange

The Orange pattern of Villeroy & Boch's French Garden series features a green trellis on a yellow ground about the rim. The leaf garland is also present. The set includes dinner plates, salad plates and bread and butter plates. The pattern also includes the hostess trays and other trays.

Valence

Valence is another in the Villeroy and Boch French Garden series. It is, in a sense, the opposite of Fleurence. While Fleurence has the summer fruits on the rim and yellow in the centre, Valence has the summer fruits in the centre with yellow on the rim. The garland of leaves is also present. It comes with dinner plates, salad plates, bread and butter plates, and rimmed soup bowls.
