Libbey Adds Organic Elegance to the Tabletop

Syracuse China expands with Atherton collection, Slenda line extensions

Add a handcrafted yet elegant feel to sophisticated tabletops with a new Syracuse® China dinnerware pattern by Libbey® Foodservice and coordinating additions to the popular Slenda® collection. The new Atherton pattern embodies classic elegance and features a dramatic accent to elevate striking presentations. Similarly, Slenda line expansions offer an even larger assortment of simple, yet refined tabletop options.

An addition to the broad selection of patterns in the popular Syracuse China Royal Rideau™ body color, the coupe shape of Atherton expands the size of the plating surface without increasing the overall size of the plate. From its large plates, trays and bowls to its intricate mugs, cups and teapot, the 30-piece Atherton collection offers the right piece to accentuate creative dishes.

“A distinctive textured ring embossment adorns the rim of the Atherton collection, immediately and instinctively drawing the eye to the center of the plate,” said Susan J. Dountas, director of foodservice marketing for Libbey Inc. “Both Atherton and the Slenda extensions seamlessly combine aesthetic appeal with mix and match versatility.”

Known for its thinner body, impeccable style and proven performance, extensions to three collections in the popular Slenda line include:

  • Slenda Practica™ – New handled platters, plates, bowls and saucers are attractive and functional. They artfully present fresh, wholesome ingredients while being easy for operators to hold and transport during fast-paced service.
  • Slenda Verve – The additional shapes of Slenda Verve bring an upscale vibe to casual dining, allowing more visual contrast and presentation possibilities. Ranging in size from its 12” oval platter to its 3 oz. espresso cup, Slenda Verve adds angular interest from big to small.
  • Slenda Perpetua – This new bowl design adds a stylish finish while maximizing capacity for plating options, with bowl sizes ranging from 6 oz. to 70 oz. From exquisite desserts to family-style pastas, Slenda Perpetua offers the right size to gracefully complement a variety of foods.
