Fitz and Floyd Dinnerware
Revolutionizing the ceramic design field after
its start as an import company in 1960 by Pat Fitzpatrick and Bob
Floyd, Fitz and Floyd has
evolved into the undisputed leader in the design and manufacture of
hand-painted ceramic giftware, dinnerware, tableware, decorative
accessories, home fragrance and collectibles. From the drawing board
to the sculpting wheel and the kiln, all Fitz and Floyd products are
distinctly designed and hand-crafted by skilled Fitz and Floyd
artisans. From its renowned studios in Dallas, the Fitz and Floyd
design team creates the company's exclusive designs — nearly 500 new
and unique designs each year.
The now popular concept of mix-and-match dinnerware —
varied yet complementary designs or colors within one pattern line —
caused a market breakthrough when conceived of by Fitz and Floyd in the
1970s. During the following decade, the company's sterling reputation
paved the way for selection of its high-quality dinnerware by the White
House and diplomatic residences around the world. Queen Elizabeth II was
even presented with a Fitz and Floyd handpainted tea service
commissioned by the city of Dallas when she visited in 1991.
Art glass and crystal, among other products for
the home, have since been added to the Fitz and Floyd repertoire.
Perhaps the company's best-loved items are its collectible
figurines, especially the engaging animals from the award-winning
Charming Tails collection. In addition, cookie jars, salt and pepper
shakers, teapots, and many more highly detailed, vividly painted
ceramics keep collectors returning to Fitz and Floyd year after
Fitz and Floyd — often elegant, sometimes
whimsical, always a prized and treasured gift.
It is a very good cookbook and I have yet to find a recipe that didn't turn out as it was supposed to.—Norm Peterson, Arizona
My hubby keeps looking in the cookbook, and asks "when will you cook this recipe?"—Lori Hamby, Florida
