To mark the upcoming 140th anniversary of its Pivoines pattern, the earthenware producer has combined the archetype with another of its most popular designs. The handpainted Pivoines peonies and the delicate Pont aux Choux textured shapes meet in the new Pont aux Choux Pivoines line ($96 to $343). The seven-piece series includes a cake platter and a teapot. +33.2.38.05.21.50, www.gien.com
