We kindly suggest you read the whole description, because with it we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to guarantee the authenticity of our objects. Set of six pretty and delicate small bowls in fine white porcelain; the shape is well-proportioned and pleasant; they are decorated on both sides with heads of young girls wearing the typical hairstyles of Brittany; they are finished on edge and body with pure gold friezes; three bowls have the same image, two others are the same and one is single (see photo); were made in fine white porcelain between 1935 and 1938 by LPN, a small company in the Limoges area (France) capital of French porcelain. Brittany has costumes of an astonishing variety and richness: handed down from generation to generation they were once worn at every family or public festivity, the richness, and finesse of the decorations serving as a mirror to the wealth of the family. Each locality in Brittany had unique and particular costumes. For these populations, who were rather isolated and withdrawn into themselves, clothes were a sign of recognition between inhabitants of different areas and countries. The great originality of the female costume is represented by the bonnet (see photo) and white), once worn above all in Finistère and Morbihan, to remember also the small bonnet of Quimper, the one of Plougastel that recalls the medieval veils, the one of Douarnenez that is tightened over the chignon. The small bowls are in good condition, in some parts the pure gold appears worn, but this makes the objects much more fascinating and historically interesting. Measures diameter cm.13, height cm.7. For all our shipments we use special packaging materials (wooden crates, styrofoam, etc.) for maximum protection and safety of the objects.
