ECHOES OF THE PAST RESONATE AT VILLEROY & BOCH.
The collection is designed to capitalize on the American consumers' increasing thirst for wine and spirits, according to Bernard Reuter, president in the United States.
"Cocktail Hour is a series of sizes and shapes matched specifically to the drink, be it a Chardonnay, Cabernet, martini or Manhattan," he said in a statement. "What we have done is created an assortment that includes six wine sizes, plus a champagne flute, martini and brandy snifter. The design is very classic and fundamental, plus it is quality crystal with an exceptional degree of clarity. More importantly, we have packaged the stems in sets of four and brought it to a suggested retail of $49.99."
Villeroy launched its first bone china pattern at the Tabletop Show one year ago; this week it is introducing a second bone china pattern called Azurea.
Metallic tones of platinum and gold accent a palette of serene pale blue and dove gray. The collection includes a family of accessories, such as brass and silver-plate serving pieces; crystal stemware; and decorative opaline glasses.
