Villeroy & Boch dates back to 1748 and a small pottery in what is now known as Luxembourg. The company bears the names of the founders, Francois Boch, and another potter, Nicholas Villeroy, who merged their booming enterprises in 1836. A marriage between two family members just 15 years later helped seal the business union.
In 2008 Villeroy & Boch celebrated its 260th anniversary. Reaching such an historic milestone is a glowing testimonial to the vision of the creators and each succeeding generation of family who have brought new life and interpretation, direction and imagination, integrity and quality to an abiding spirit of innovation and development. Uniquely, to this day, the 8th generation of Villeroys and Bochs continues to manage the company--upholding the high standards of design and quality which have earned the brand its status image.
Villeroy & Boch produces dinnerware in a variety of ceramic materials--porcelain, bone china and earthenware. Additionally, they also offer crystal and glass stemware and giftware, and stainless steel cutlery - even oven to tableware items called "Vilbofour." Many of these other products are designed to complement and accent the dinnerware patterns, helping to complete a customer's tablescape with style and class.
