ABOUT LITHOPHANES

  • PLEASE NOTE: Lithophanes are popular today, still being made, still in production.
  • The two for sale here are not recent reproductions or copies.
  • Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithophane  
  • Bisque porcelain plaques such as these were designed to be slid into a metal frame to be back lit.
  • These were usually grouped together as a scene composed from separate tiles.
  • So you can see these in use, we include the last photo below, of a lithophane lamp.
  • When the light is on it shines through the plaques as back lighting.
  • When back lit, these two dimensional bisque porcelain plaques appear to glow from within.
  • The images in the plaques assume a three dimensional translucent quality.
  • Not all lithophanes are raised bisque porcelain, and not all are hand colored.
  • The more common versions have a flat surface, and when backlit, reveal an inherent ombre or shadow image.
