Pillivuyt Culinary Porcelain Petite Lion's Head Tureen 1.5 c.


Product Description

Pillivuyt Lion's Head tureens are the most finely detailed in the world and the only tureens that still employ highly skilled craftsmen to do the hand-finishing. The lion's heads are hand-applied to the outside of the tureen, not pressed in by machine so that the inside of the tureen is solid, smooth and easy to clean. This 1 1/2 cup Lion's Head Tureen lid is just a little smaller than its lidded cousin. Use it for individual servings of soup or chili. Or freeze individual portions and then put them in the microwave or oven to heat up. Pillivuyt porcelain is microwave and oven-safe, even for broiling, can go directly from freezer to oven and has an impenetrable glaze that will not craze and is hygienic and easy to clean. Food- and dishwasher-safe and resistant to scratching or chipping. Made in France


In 1818, Louis Charles Pillivuyt (pronounced 'pilly-veet") set about to create the finest quality porcelain using his own individual combination of raw materials. His original work was inspired by artisans and craftsmen and has been refined by his successors to fulfill his original vision. Pillivuyt cookware today is internationally known for its exceptionally even heat conduction, as well as its versatility and durability. The hard glaze makes it very easy to clean. Pressure molding ensures a very dense and tough porcelain base. Fired at 2500°F, each piece is oven, microwave and dishwasher safe. Since 1853 pillivuyt has been operating out of the Pillivuyt homestead near the town of Mehun-su-Yevre. The factory is employee-owned and today employs 300 of the local population. Pillivuyt is recognized as France's leading porcelain manufacturer. Chefs and artists contribute to the design process to blend form and function to make this the most versatile, practical and beautiful culinary porcelain on the international market today.
