Our Vietry Dinnerware
and China Line
Pottery Italian Dinnerware, Flatware, Garden Pots & Lamps
bring the intimacy, ambiance and tradition of Italy into your dining
experience with Vietri Pottery. All Vietri tableware is meticulously
hand-crafted and beautifully hand-painted in Italy.
The serendipitous story of
Vietri started in 1983 with a mother-and-daughters trip to Italy. The
trio of ladies, Lee, Susan and Frances Gravely, were enamored by the
artistry of the uniquely hand-painted and colorful dishes used in their
hotel. They inquired about who made them and where they were made. Using
a hired translator, they found the factory and met with the owner, Don
Vincenzo Solimene. After three days and a handshake with Mr. Solimene,
they departed Italy with a suitcase full of samples and their dream
to create a company that embodies the spirit of the Italian dining culture.
Today, Vietri still carries
the line Vietri Campagna, which Mr. Solimene continues to produce for
Vietri. However, Vietri now uses over 140 Italian artisans to create
their "Irresistibly Italian" wood, ceramic and glass dining
and home decor pieces. Come into our High Point location for more information!
