Most of us only know it from five-star hotels, top restaurants or pictures of stately homes, cutlery embellished with silver or gold. But exclusive high-quality cutlery made of precious metal immediately upgrades any table anywhere. For lovers of classically elegant table-settings, Villeroy & Boch is therefore now presenting silver-plated versions of three successful cutlery lines: the historically inspired Neufaden Merlemont and Kreuzband Septfontaines, and the timelessly modern La Classica. La Classica is also available as a partially gold-plated line, providing that special touch of extra extravagance.
Silver-plated lines for classically elegant table-settings
Thanks to their distinctively traditional design, the cutlery lines Neufaden Merlemont and Kreuzband Septfontaines are true classics. Neufaden Merlemont displays an elegant droplet-shape at the end of the handles and a strand that peters out as it moves away from the handle, a striking design attribute. The historical character of Kreuzband Septfontaines is underscored by delicate ornamentation on the handles and the back of the tops of the cutlery. The La Classica cutlery displays straight contours and a deliberately minimalist design language. The clear lines and simple geometry of this slender cutlery create a fine understatement.
The selected cutlery lines receive their high-quality silver-plating in Germany. Thanks to years of experience and special manufacturing techniques the silver-plated cutlery is food safe and dishwasher proof.
The silver-plated cutlery Neufaden Merlemont, Kreuzband Septfontaines and La Classi-ca are each available in 24-, 30-, 70- and 113-piece sets. They make wonderful high-quality presents, for instance for a wedding or a notable birthday.
Partially gold-plated La Classica for more glamour and noblesse on the table
Partial gold-plating is a traditional technique that gives cutlery that extra special touch. The partially gold-plated La Classica is manufactured from stainless steel 18/10 and has a formal elegance that is highlighted by the addition of gold. The soft, matt gold colour contrasts attractively with the lustrous stainless steel but also forms a seamless part of the harmonious overall impression. All the pieces of cutlery, especially the hollow-handle knives, are very comfortable to hold. The new, partially gold-plated cutlery goes well with the tableware collection La Classica Nuova, but also with expressive décors like Amazonia, Ivoire, Aureus and Samarkand Mosaic, and with the fine white table-ware Anmut. The cutlery line is dishwasher safe.
