The French really understand how to fully enjoy coffee...pour it into a sweet bowl and dip your fresh croissant in! Sounds so good right? Well, that's why they invented the cafe au lait bowl! Of course these dainty bowls can be used for so many other things! Perfect for ice cream or fresh berries. They are also quite the hot collectors item right now! Start your collection right with this set!
These were made in France by the F. D Chauvigny porcelain company, established in the mid 1800's. This manufacturer of fine French porcelain is part of the Deshoulieres group which is headquartered in Chauvigny.
Considering their age, these two little bowls are in good vintage condition. One does have a tiny chip on the rim and one on the base too. No cracks or crazing. There are some minor flaws on the surface due to use but I believe this only adds to their nostalgic charm.
