tabletop: Jars tableware from France

When I say I carry “Jars” dishes and bowls at my store, Little Blue Dish (formerly “The Product Gallery”), most clients are not familiar with the brand. It is a beautiful line I carry from France in a greeny-blue, a pale sea blue and a cream. Jars ceramics was started in 1857 but in the 80’s, founder Pierre Jars’, great-grandson modernized the brand and improved the quality for everyday use. Today the stoneware is still handcrafted in the south of France. Please take a look on my shopping site at the gorgeous chargers, plates, cups, saucers and bowls. Right now I’m offering FREE SHIPPING for any item in the store until July 20th, use code: summer savings at checkout.┬áThe attention to detail is amazing and the wave or ‘feathered’ edges in some of the bowls make the brand truly unique. This stoneware gets rave reviews and it’s one of my favorite companies.
