It was in Limoges, France, in 1828 that Paul de Bourgoing invented the Lithophane (VotivelightTM), a traditional engraving technique on a fine bisque (non-glazed) porcelain. The glow of the candle shines through the raised and carved surface of the votive contrasting light against shadow, revealing its richly detailed design. Its surprising translucency is characteristic of Limoges porcelain and Bernardaud has created a vast lithophane collection of varying theme. Thanks to the traditional technique of hand-sculpting fine bisque porcelain – non-glazed, the glow shines through the raised and carved surface to contrast light against shadow, revealing a richly detailed design. There are several scenes to choose from: dogs, flowers, classical dancers etc.
It’s amazing how pieces of fine porcelain evoke memorable moments! This observation inspired master perfumer Olivia Giacobetti to create a unique collection of delicate home fragrances for Bernardaud, all made from natural essences. This delicious scent combined with this beautiful votivelight makes it a really piece.
