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.

Its surprising translucency is characteristic of Limoges porcelain and Bernardaud has created a vast lithophane collection of varying themes.
