Description

A stacking picnic set from the Avant Garde range by Villeroy & Boch, comprising large serving bowls, large plates, side plates, a jug and beakers. The set has been designed in such a way that elements of it may be removed to cater for fewer people whilst it still holds it's shape and strength. Made from compression moulded melamine formaldehyde, the design of La Bomba, in 1972, was a development of the 'La Boule' dish set by the same designers, Helen von Boch and Federigo Fabbrini. The complete set would have included flatware which is missing in this example. This example is contained in its original handled string bag and box.
