About Fitz And Floyd

Fitz and Floyd was founded in 1960 by Pat Fitzpatrick and Robert Floyd in Dallas, Texas.  The company earned a leading reputation in the consumer products industry for the quality, style and creativity of its fine china and hand-painted giftware, available exclusively through better specialty and department stores.

Manufacturing

Most if not all of the Fitz and Floyd ceramic pieces were made in Japan. While we don't have documentation of which factories were used we have seen several pot de creme sets made for Fitz and Floyd that were also available under other porcelain sellers names.

Products

Fitz and Floyd has produced a variety of products including teapots, dinnerware, figurines, specialty Christmas themed products and colorful majolica-style wares.

Today the Fitz and Floyd design staff creates virtually all of the company's exclusive designs, including a variety of limited-edition teapots, figurines, waterglobes, annual Christmas ornaments, plates and bells for collectors.
