An artistic and sophisticated way to serve
Terrines have complemented classic tableware sets since the 18th Century, largely for serving soups and stews – so it is right that the name, which comes from the Latin word “terra”, now represents a vessel usually filled with the fruits of the earth, such as potatoes, leeks and carrots. A hearty stew with fresh seasonal vegetables as a main course or a light chicken broth as a starter – served in a tasteful terrine from Villeroy & Boch, every course becomes a real indulgence. Thanks to their high quality standards and appealing design, the various collections and décors bring a touch of elegance to the table that is perfectly completed with classic white or picturesque motifs.
Varied design vocabulary
Representing elegance and classic design, the numerous shapes and décors of the stylish terrines are proof that not everything always has to be served on a silver tray. The wide range enables you to choose beautiful bowls that match your style and the ambiance of your dining table. The modern terrines in the NewWave series enchant the look of every table with their asymmetric shapes and curved lines. Available in a wide range of colours, the terrines in country design, with the landscape and fruit motifs, also match the rustic charm of any French country style. The charming design of the soup bowls from Villeroy & Boch is finished off with practical lids, which keep the contents warm even during a long dinner.
The terrines in the various series are traditionally made from high-quality porcelain. The premium porcelain Villeroy & Boch uses is designed for long-lasting and intensive use, with its high impact resistance and strong rims. For special occasions, we recommend the terrines made from high-quality premium bone porcelain, whose shimmering colour gives the entire table an extraordinary radiance. And if some of the delicious meal remains in the terrine once everyone is finished, it can easily be reheated in the microwave the next day. Once the bowl is empty, you do not have to spend much time washing up, as the terrines are dishwasher safe and easy to clean in the dishwasher. Once again, Villeroy & Boch demonstrates that stylish design and functionality do not have to be mutually exclusive.
Expert quick-change artists
Beautiful bowls can do more than their main purpose of making the food look good on the table – they also make fascinating decorative objects on the sideboard. Filled with white or red roses, the terrines provide an opulent harmony between a decorative flower arrangement and delicate porcelain, artistically reused as charming vases. The high-quality porcelain tableware is also always a useful gift idea for a wedding or when a friend wants to add to their tableware set. Make a statement with a delicate terrine that emphasises the entire concept of the table and complements the rest of the porcelain tableware. It is your choice whether you want to choose a terrine to match the collection or deliberately break with your style and let your creativity run wild on the dinner table.
