Villeroy Boch Izmir

Villeroy Boch Izmir

This bold and striking Middle Eastern influenced pattern with its lovely stylised floral elements and gorgeous blues and turquoise is Villeroy & Boch’s “Izmir”. It was produced between 1973-1975.

I have been unable to find who designed the pattern, but the design is on the “Milano” shapes, designed by Ludwig Scherer. This series of elegant, uncomplicated forms were used for a number of designs by Villeroy Boch between the 1960s -1990s including “Scarlett”, “Cadiz”, “Granada” and or course “Acapulco” and more.

Interestingly there was a re-iteration of the design which was produced by Villeroy & Boch 1994-2002.

The newer pattern has a multi coloured patterned rim with scalloped edge, but is mostly white. Overall quite a bland design in comparison – but typical of its era. It was produced from 1994 to 2004.
