Pillivuyt, has been been producing fine, hand-crafted porcelain tableware for over 200 years in the Sancerre region of France. Founded by the Pillivuyt family in 1818, the factory is now employee owned and operated near the town of Mehun-sur-Yevre in France.

Pillivuyt is one of the few porcelain makers to develop its own porcelain compound on-site at the factory. 

Pillivuyt porcelain is first fired at 1795 F, glaze is then applied and the porcelain is fired a second time at 2552 F. Decorated pieces are fired a third time in order to incorporate pigments into the glaze of the pieces, ensuring that they will be permanent and impervious to fading or changing color.
