Arcopal Madness

I have always loved anything to do with France. It is my dream one day to visit Paris. I want to eat French pastries on a little sidewalk cafe. When I was about 5 years old, I remember that Evening in Paris perfume was very popular. I remember it came in a pretty blue bottle. And every time I saw that blue bottle I wished I could go to France.


I recently discovered some vintage dish products from a company called Acropal France. The dinnerware is white opal tempered glass that is break proof with a fire glazed finish. It is made by the company that makes Mikasa. Here are some of my favorite pieces in their line. Some of the items resemble a Pyrex style

These coffee cups look like they could be used for soup. I just love the floral pattern.

I am also fond of their daisy and bird pattern that is on this bowl. Reminds me of something Pyrex would do.

I would love to stumble upon an entire set of the dishware.

This pitcher is just adorable.

This is probably my favorite item that I would like to have in this pattern.

On the other hand, this could possibly be my favorite set. The good news it the entire set is $30.00 USD. The bad news it they will not ship to the United States. Guess I'll have to look around here.

This is an absolutely gorgeous casserole dish.

This is absolutely the most precious little coffee pot I have ever seen.

I would love to have these little ramekins for snack items such as peanuts or M and M's. 

Now, just to see if I can find any of this around here.
