This café au lait bowl has a beautifully neat form. No back stamp could be seen on the back, so details could not be gleaned, but the anonymous charm, therefore, seems to create an even more profound sense of depth. As the name suggests, café au lait bowls were made for drinking café au lait, but in fact, these bowls were used for a wide range of purposes, including for drinking soup and meals. This café au lait bowl has a small scratch on the bottom, a chip on the rim, and no back stamp, which suggests that perhaps the same shape was used commercially in a café or similar establishment. Please feel free to use it as you see fit, as it is a beautifully brewed piece of art in appearance and sign. I hope you like it.
