About Us


Hello, Friends! At European Tableware, we truly adore dishes. We are an on-line boutique that has hand-picked every bowl, every napkin ring, every coaster that you see here. We even use the products you see on our website in our own home - Portmeirion, Spode, Bodrum and Pimpernel.

We are a husband and wife team, Kari Enger and Bruce LeCaptain. Our family's adventure of a lifetime was living in North Yorkshire, England, and traveling with our three small children all over Europe (large stuffed animals often in tow). Home again, we embraced our European experience and inspiration and created this business.

We think that living your life fully means always using the good china! Gathering around the table is so central to our lives. So enjoying your dishes, and making memories, with family and friends should be treasured every day.

Did we mention we also love helping our customers get exactly what they want? It's not uncommon to find us calling manufacturers to find imported or recently retired pieces. We try to get orders shipped quickly.
