European Elegance carries an eclectic mix of both modern and timeless fine European and International merchandise. From our luxe glass jewelry to our brightly-colored cloths and hand-painted ceramics, we strive to offer the best in unique home goods, accessories, and giftware!
All of our serving and decorative dishes have authentic European roots. For instance, we carry a variety of shapes and designs of Polish Stoneware, a style which originated in the folk art traditions of the early 1800s. These dishes are still crafted today using a combination of one-of-a-kind stamping and free-hand techniques. If you'd like to take a closer look, check out the images we have included in the gallery; there you'll see the delicate brushstrokes that render each piece of Boleslawiec stoneware truly unique.
