Villeroy and Boch Gray Pearl
Gray Pearl dinnerware by Villeroy & Boch is a pattern as luminescent and discreetly elegant as a rare pearl. With subtle shades of shimmering grey and exquisite brocade-like ornamentation, this collection will heighten the elegance of any table setting. Brocade, which dates back to the middle ages, is a class of richly decorative shuttle-woven fabrics, often made in coloured silks and sometimes with gold and silver threads. The name, comes from Italian broccato meaning "embossed cloth". The inspiration taken from this most expensive fabric can be clearly seen in the subtle decoration applied to the rims of the three sizes of plate: Dinner
, Salad and Bread & Butter. Additional texture is added to the collection in the teaware. Coffee Pot
, Teapot, Cream
and Sugar are all gently grooved with raised border decoration. The same same style of decoration is used on many of the larger serving pieces such as the Salad Bowl
and Soup Tureen
. Grey Pearl is the perfect choice for formal dining occasions offering the complete range of dinnerware to cater for any gathering. Grey Pearl is a bone china dinnerware and is decorated using an overglaze technique ensuring it is dishwasher safe.
