La Rochere still produces their historic decors including their most famous and exclusive decor Napoleon Bee using old world techniques of pressed glass molds with the traditional seams and extra sturdy and heavy glass, producing not only beautiful but sturdy glass in the historic and traditional methods. This is sign of authentic la Rochere glass that every collector looks for giving the glass that old world authentic feel and personality. This set is both dishwasher and microwave safe.
These are so beautiful and I love them to pieces... Sadly, two are in pieces. I'm no bull in a china shop and neither is my husband, but these bowls are dropping like flies in our house. I received them in December and I'll be needing more very soon.
To detail their injuries: I chipped one when placing them into the cabinet- managed to tap the pedestal just so on the lip of another. Another cracked upon pouring soup into it. And the most recent casualty was due to a case of the dropsies.
In short, they're the most lovely bowls I've ever come across and even though they cannot withstand daily use, I just might purchase a new set.
I plan to give these bowls to my neighbors next year with homemade cranberry sauce for next years Christmas gifts...wanted quality glass as well as useful practicality, can't be more pleased with these bowls!
