A reference to design trends from the 1970's, the geometric motif of the Athena Collection creates a dimensional and graphic appearance. Brilliant and matte accents highlight the understated, neoclassical frieze, while emphasizing the beautiful modernity of the collection.

Porcelain: Hand-wash or dishwasher?
You may hand-wash your dinnerware using the soft side of a scrub sponge and regular dishwashing liquid. However, never use the abrasive side of the sponge, which might scratch or damage the surface of the decoration, especially gold or platinum.
Our dinnerware is also dishwasher-safe. Make sure to select a low-temperature program and do not exceed the recommended amount of detergent. If you are not going to wash your dishes right away (either by hand or in the dishwasher), we advise you to rinse them off with hot water. Load all of the pieces securely in the dishwasher so they can't be dislodged by water action, touch other items and get chipped.
Porcelain and the microwave
All of our dinnerware patterns are microwave-safe except those decorated with precious metals (gold, silver or platinum). When Bernardaud uses a precious metal for decoration, the percentage of metal is high, so these dinnerware sets should never be put in a microwave.
Porcelain and the conventional oven
Our porcelain pieces (fired at 1400°C) can easily withstand the maximum temperature of a conventional oven (300°C). You can warm your dinner plates in the oven and use Bernardaud serveware for all cooking and baking purposes. However, our products should not be subjected to pronounced temperature differences. For instance, never take a serving dish out of the refrigerator and put it directly into a hot even (or vice-versa). This will make your porcelain dish or any dish made of a ceramic material crack.
An icon of the tradition of excellence based in Limoges, France, Bernardaud is one of the most innovative spirits among French luxury tableware today. A trendsetter in design, its porcelain collections are characterized by delicate colors and original forms, capturing the essence of their time. Traditional or contemporary, the Bernardaud collections elegantly modernize the art of entertaining.
