This bowl is made in the old glazed pottery workshop — Moulin de Loup — near Valenciennes in northern France, in a style typical of the 19th century, with a raised pedestal base.

They were more often seen in less well-off households in the poorer region around Horchis, where people were more likely to drink coffee made from chicory rather than coffee beans.

The pattern, which is characteristic of rural artefacts, dates from the beginning of the 20th century.

400–700 ml: €14.50–€16.

Believe me, scads of that type of bowl are still being sold in most houseware stores. It's a french custom to pour a lot of milk in a bowl, add some coffee and then dunk yesterday's baguette(buttered) in it for breakfast.
