Pillivuyt Lion's Head Soup Tureen

Product Specifications

Pillivuyt (pronounced PILL-ee-veet) has been making porcelain in France since 1818, and is one of France's oldest and most reputable porcelain brands.  All their pieces are fired at 2400° Fahrenheit, making them extremely strong and durable.  Pillivuyt porcelain is highly resistant to thermal shock, so it can go directly from the freezer to the oven, and the high firing temperature makes the glaze on the pieces non-porous, resistant to scratching and chipping, and easy to clean.  Pillivuyt porcelain is culinary grade and is made in France of the finest raw materials.

No single dish symbolizes French cuisine more than the Pillivuyt Lion's Head Soup Tureen.  This tureen is unique in the international market in that skilled, highly trained craftsmen make the finishing touches.  For this piece, the artisans manually apply the lion's heads to the outside of the tureen before the final firing.  This avoids the indentation found on the inside of other versions of this bowl and gives a much more elegant and refined appearance.
