Vintage French Stoneware Ramekins (Set of 4)
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.
We couldn’t have dreamed up a better vessel for crème brûlée (mini casseroles and custards too). This vintage ramekin comes straight from France, where it was handmade from the local grey clay. Oh, and you bet it’s durable: With that sturdy stoneware build, it’ll take on the oven, microwave, or freezer, easy, then hop in the dishwasher when it’s time to wash up.
