The Lithophane (VotivelightTM) is a traditional engraving technique on a fine bisque (non-glazed) porcelain that was invented in Limoges in 1828. Bernardaud still use it to craft beautiful votives that come in a wide variety of decor. The glow of the candle shines through the raised and carved surface of the votive, contrasting light against shadow and thus revealing its richly detailed design. Burning time: up to 6 hours.
Dimension: H 7.5 cm, Dia 11.3 cm
About the brand
For more than 150 years, the company bearing the family’s name has been synonymous with Limoges porcelain. Over the generations, Bernardaud has grown into a major player on the French luxury and international decorative arts scene. Porcelain has been used for millennia, but it still detains properties and applications whose potential has never been fully explored. In this quest the founders have been fortunate to have been able to build on the legacy of their predecessors and on the two-pronged approach that is the signature of the family house: drawing from the traditions of a heritage craft, we seek to innovate and march to the beat of our own drum. This modus operandi is governed by the values of the family company which permeate the thinking and the entire approach to business. At Bernardaud we are all very proud to contribute the best of ourselves and keep up our ongoing quest for excellence.
