Villeroy & Boch (Luxembourg) 'Acapulco' 14" Oval Serving Platter
The company was founded in 1748, when François Boch and his three sons began manufacturing ceramic tableware and decorative art objects. In 1836, Jean-François Boch merged with the successful stoneware manufacturer Nicolas Villeroy (a once competitor) to form what we know today, Villeroy & Boch.
Fast forward to the 1960s/70s and the company is producing some of the now iconic patterns across a range of tableware pieces, created by then designer Christine Reuter. Such patterns include Acapulco (1967), Izmir (1973) and Viking to name a few.
