About French lion head bowls

French lion head bowls, also known as "têtes de lion" bowls, are decorative bowls that feature lion head motifs as handles or decorative elements. They are typically made of ceramic or porcelain and are often associated with French decorative arts and craftsmanship.

These bowls are named after the prominent lion heads that adorn their sides. The lion heads are intricately sculpted or molded and serve as handles for carrying or lifting the bowl. The design of the lion heads can vary, but they commonly depict the fierce and majestic features of a lion, including its mane, facial expression, and sometimes even its open mouth.

French lion head bowls became popular during the 18th and 19th centuries in France, particularly during the Neoclassical and Empire periods. 

Today, antique French lion head bowls are sought after by collectors and enthusiasts of French decorative arts. They are considered valuable pieces that represent a rich artistic tradition and the elegance of past eras. 

Whether used as functional bowls or displayed as decorative objects, French lion head bowls continue to captivate with their timeless beauty and the skillful craftsmanship that went into their creation.
