French porcelain individual butter dish 6.5cm
By French company Pillivuyt who have been producing fine porcelain in robust and elegant in simple classic shapes since 1818 at their factory near the town of Mehun-sur-Yevre in central France.
In 1818, Jean Louis Richard Pillivuyt founded the Pillivuyt porcelain factory. Since 1853, the factory has been situated at Mehun sur Yèvre. Equipped with state of the art production equipment, Pillivuyt cleverly blends century-old traditional craftsmanship with modern techniques to create perfect individual pieces to complement any table. Pillivuyt remains one of the few porcelain producers which develops its paste according to its own formula from selected and systematically controlled raw materials. Multiple firings at very high temperature produce pieces that are totally non-porous and highly resistant to both mechanical and thermal shocks.
