APILCO 3-1/2 BY 10 INCH PORCELAIN TERRINE
Apilco is a consortium of porcelain manufacturers located in the Limoges area of France that has provided cookware to culinary professionals since 1906. Its versatile products for both cooking and serving were developed with the participation of leading chefs, and their classically beautiful designs (some more than a century old), high glaze and milky white finish are popular worldwide.
