Some foods are a firm part of our lives. Sugar, tea and butter should not only be stored safely, but presented attractively as well. A porcelain box is just the thing. However, these elegant boxes made of manufactured porcelain are also perfect for serving confectionery, biscuits and other little snacks such as nuts. At FÜRSTENBERG, you will find an extensive selection of small and large designs, in historic and modern shapes, in white, with hand-painted gold décors or coloured patterns, with decorated or entirely functional lids that can also be used as tiny dishes. Along with the many versions that were created in FÜRSTENBERG’s own studio, there are also designer boxes such as the timeless classics in the WAGENFELD range by Wilhelm Wagenfeld or – absolutely up-to-date – a matt polished box by the Swiss designer Alfredo Häberli. Every design contains the passion for detail and understanding of aesthetic appeal that ensures every box is also a tiny treasure chest not only for food, but also for souvenirs or jewellery that mean a lot to us.
The finely worked porcelain boxes are too lovely to be hidden away in a cupboard. Whether on the living room sideboard, a kitchen shelf or on a chest of drawers in the bedroom, a decorative spot for a little porcelain box can always be found. You can choose from very modern shapes or classics in cultural and contemporary history to suit the style of your interior and your creativity. But by the same token, with the current trend for mix & match there’s no need for you to have to choose. You can create your own individual combination of old and new, coloured and white, or even various styles. The very modern box in the Fluen collection by designer Alfredo Häberli will add new accents on grandfather’s bureau. Historic boxes such as ALT FÜRSTENBERG with charming decorations radiate personality and warmth in puristic, modern environments. Patterns bring colour into our interiors that are often all white or in muted plain colours, and are lovely for combining with fresh flowers and wonderfully filled baskets of fruit.
With every single porcelain box, you can feel the dedication and special care that for 270 years has gone into the elegant porcelain that is made in Fürstenberg. Extremely thin-walled porcelain, perfectly fitting lids and fine details such as shiny glazes and matt polished surfaces can only be achieved with plenty of expertise and skilled craftsmanship. This unique combination of centuries-old skilled craftsmanship and modern design results in unmistakeable porcelain. Thus FÜRSTENBERG creates porcelain boxes that never fail to bring joy in daily use – either for you yourself or as a timeless gift for friends, family and colleagues.
