Villeroy and Boch Design Naif
The Villeroy & Boch Design Naif collection is truly unique. The idyllic rural scenes were painted in 1980 by Gérard Laplau, a French Corsican artist who was instrumental in establishing “naïve” as a globally relevant art form. The beauty of the naïve art used in Design Naif is that you will discover something new every day. The collection uses a multi motif principal with over a dozen different designs. The lovingly decorated pieces adored by children & collectors worldwide often feature family and village vignettes with occasional biblical motifs. The six dinner plates feature designs such as the Farmer
, the Village
and Huntsman along with the Noah’s Ark
which is beautifully decorated with a selection of exotic animals. These designs also appear on the salad plates while the Bread and Butter Plates have six different motifs including the Meeting
. One gets a real sense of being part of the village and the lives of the charming inhabitants. The Collection is bought together by the uniform banding which decorates the rims of plates, bowls and cups. Two black lines, of different weights, encircle the outer rims with each design also bordered by a fine black line. This charming premium porcelain collection is perfect for daily family use at breakfast or for an afternoon tea. Despite Design Naif’s vintage appeal it is ready for the rigors of modern living being both Dishwasher & microwave safe.
