Pfaltzgraff Villa Della Luna Blue Stoneware and Melamine Dinnerware

Pfaltzgraff Villa Della Luna Blue Stoneware and Melamine Dinnerware

We had Pfaltzgraff when I was a kid. The stoneware stood up to us kids doing the dishes. We had a house fire and one of the only things to survive is one of the Pfaltzgraff plates.

Pfaltzgraff now has dinnerware that looks like traditional Italian ceramics, but in durable stoneware and melamine!

Villa della Luna®

Pfaltzgraff has created a beautiful collection of dinnerware, serveware and accessories based on the book “Dancing with the Moon, a Story of Love at the Villa della Luna” by Jana Kolpen and Mary Tiegreen. The centuries-old traditions of Italian ceramics are honored in the colors, designs and craftsmanship of every piece.
