One of my favorties:

This is a “litophane” I bought in Vienna.
There are tender mother-child scenes encarved on each side. When it is lit by a candle, the most elegant scene appears.

A lithophane (French: lithophanie) is an etched or molded artwork in thin very translucent porcelain that can only be seen clearly when back lit with a light source. It is a design or scene in intaglio that appears “en grisaille” (in gray) tones.

Litophane collectors all over the world, please share your pieces with me!
