I used to buy a lot more plates than I do nowadays; I've had my wings clipped!
Many have never been used (by us); the above being one such case.
I have 8 of these soup bowls, and they live amongst many others in a dark cupboard, never seeing the light of day.
They were made by Longwy, in Lorraine; up by the Belgian/Luxembourg borders. I think the factory may now have closed.
The hand-painted pattern (which is called 'Caprice') is very 1930's, and its simplicity reminds me of Clarice Cliff.
I suppose we ought to use them; at least once.
