New French Style Gifts for the Holidays!

Our Tête à Tête Set for Two, with French vintage transferware dinner plates, vintage knives and forks, and oversized linen or damask napkins sets the table for a French-style moment, be it dinner, lunch, or breakfast, or even a picnic. The  set comes packaged in a Kraft box with a La Vie Rustic label and an indigo satin ribbon, perfect for gift-giving.

Gratin dishes are back at La Vie Rustic, this time hand-thrown by artisan potter Rebecca Bresnick, based on one of my favorite French gratin dishes, a classic in shades of ochre and rust. It’s the right size for 4 to 6 servings of any gratin – think potato, seafood, or leek for winter, asparagus, artichoke and fava bean for spring, tomato, eggplant, pepper for summer, and fresh shelling beans, celery root, and savory quince for fall. The dish is a unique, one-of-a-kind gift for your favorite cook. The supply is limited, so we suggest pre-ordering for November shipping.

And don’t forget our popular Petits Pots for Escargots set of 12 vintage stoneware pots for the Francophile on your list,
