Founded in 1818 by two Swiss brothers, Jean Louis Richard and Charles Pillivuyt, the company was first established in the town of Foëcy in the Sancerre region of France. We have been using pieces at home for over 30 years and they still look like new. Put it in the oven, the dishwasher and all along lovely enough to grace your dining table. The shop collection grows & grows. I have been finding vintage pieces of late, too, which makes me so happy. The tradition lives on.
