Degrenne French Normandy Flatware
History in a spoon.
Wanna know where this beautiful set get its shine? Believe it or not, this is a reproduction of founder Guy Degrenne’s first flatware set—which he made back in 1948 using armor from tanks left on the beaches of Normandy. And rather than dubbing it with the French Normandie spelling, he opted for the American spelling to pay tribute to the soldiers who helped France win the war. Just like the original set, these pieces are classic, elegant, and exceptionally strong. (And yes, they’re dishwasher friendly!) Long trusted by many of the world’s finest restaurants, now Degrenne’s beautiful flatware can join you for everything from your fancy dinners to your morning toast.
