Bernardaud artisans use the same technique of hand-sculpting fine, bisque porcelain first demonstrated in the 17th century. The glow of a tealight candle (not included) shines through the raised and carved surface to contrast light against shadow, revealing a richly detailed design. Founded in Limoges, France in 1863, Bernardaud is steeped in the great French porcelain tradition. Highly regarded for their ability to create the perfect blend of classic and modern, the family-owned company upholds the philosophy of founders: preservation of technical expertise, the tradition of creativity and a passion for innovation. 3" diam. x 3"H.
