Feu de Four pieces are very rare! For example companies like Haviland (Limoges area) only used this method of firing porcelain for two years from 1893 to 1895 and then stopped because of the expense of the process.

These pieces were made for the elites and could only be afforded by few. They have become very rare and expensive!

If you look closely you will also see much of the pattern is under the glaze. Imagine these pieces were painted, glazed, fired and painted again. A very tedious and expensive method.

Pâte-sur-pâte is a French term meaning “paste on paste”. It is a method of porcelain decoration in which a relief design is created on an unfired, unglazed body by applying successive layers of white slip (liquid clay) with a brush.

The effect is somewhat similar to other types of relief decoration (sprigging). However, unlike Jasperware, for example, a mold is not normally used, and the ceramic artist is able to achieve translucency.

Bohemian glass

Chiefly referred to as Bohemia crystal, is glass produced in the regions of Bohemia and Silesia, now parts of the Czech Republic. It has a centuries long history of being internationally recognised for its high quality, craftsmanship, beauty and often innovative designs.

Hand-cut, engraved, blown and painted decorative glassware ranging from champagne flutes to enormous chandeliers, ornaments, figurines and other glass items are among the best known Czech exports and immensely popular as tourist souvenirs. The Czech Republic is home to numerous glass studios and schools attended by local and foreign students.
