Vessels with history
Lots of people associate jugs with striking vessels for pouring out full-bodied wines or strong ales. Clay jugs have always been among the most eye-catching ancient archaeological finds. Jugs have been used as storage vessels for wines, oils and grain for more than 200 years, as their solidity and bulbous form are ideal for protecting the content against light and moisture. Since the late Roman period, jugs have also been used for transporting and storing water. This use is still intrinsic in most glass jugs today – and the water and juice jugs from Villeroy & Boch are no exception. The fine glass decanters are presented in a modern design and their unique style is the perfect complement to the look of any table.
Classic shapes represent elegance
A freshly-squeezed orange juice placed next to the warm croissants on a decadent breakfast table is best served in a juice jug from Villeroy & Boch, while the water jug is an essential companion to the water, white wine and red wine glasses. The vessels' wide range of uses demands elegant décors that provide the finishing touch to any laid table. Teamed with matching glasses, the elegant glass jugs from Villeroy & Boch have a purist design that is reflected in their linear shapes and precise, unadulterated craftsmanship. For ease of use, the juice jug includes a harmoniously rounded handle that makes topping up glasses child's play even when the jug is full to the brim.
Traditional glass craftsmanship
The consistently high quality of the Villeroy & Boch glass series can also be seen in the glass jugs, which are made with enormous care and the perfection of true glassmakers. Since glassmaking began at Villeroy & Boch in 1843, the company has repeatedly set new standards in processing and working with this valuable raw material. Because the glass products are high-quality items made from premium materials, the water and juice jugs are dishwasher safe. When handled correctly, the glass jugs will retain their impressive shine and resistance for a long time. If a cloudy deposit should develop after a while, simply clean the jug with a cloth soaked in ammonia solution to restore it to its original shine.
Often more than meets the eye
A glass carafe from Villeroy & Boch can usually be used as a water jug at dinner time or a juice jug for a vitamin-rich and healthy start to the day. Those who expand their horizons will also see attractive vessels for bunches of summery flowers in the enchanting glass items. Be it with pastel-coloured lilies or bright gerberas, the brilliant, shining glass is the ideal accompaniment to the magnificent colours of the natural world. Thanks to the delicate, translucent material, the jugs perfectly match Villeroy & Boch's white porcelain tableware series, giving the table a decorative and stylish look. If you give the juice jugs as a gift, the recipient will always be able to serve water and juice in style.
