For your morning thé.

Wait till you hear the story behind this rare collection: It goes back to 1847, when Stanislas Renault first opened his workshop in Argent-sur-Sauldre, France. One move and 173 years later, the Poterie Renault business had stayed in the family for five generations, continuing to handcraft iconic stoneware from French clay (and even fire it all in the original kiln). Sadly, they’re closing their doors—but not before we were able to snap up a treasure trove of vintage pieces. We brought them here just for you, and they’re available exclusively at our Shop.

Take a sip from one of these charming teacups, and you just might find yourself in a café in the French countryside. (After all, they were handcrafted in the Loire Valley from local grey clay.) Each vessel gets its one-of-a-kind shine from an age-old salt-firing process. Since they’re stoneware through and through, they’re happily dishwasher-friendly—and ready to hold cup after cup of piping-hot tisane.
