Childbirth set with rose (5 pcs)
Description Additional Information

This particularly elaborate childbirth set consists of 5 different items: a large bowl with handles, a large bowl without handles, a large cup, an egg holder and a large lid with a rose.


It will make a delicious and precious gift for a mother-to-be and it will equally be a magnificent home décor accent and a rare collector’s piece of Italian pottery.


A few centuries ago, during the Renaissance, a childbirth set, also known as accouchement service, was meant to bring comfort to women after giving birth to their baby and to celebrate the happy ending as childbirth was a very dangerous and risky activity.
The women used the set for their first meal after the event and when the item was no longer needed, it was usually displayed in the home for generations. The wealthy families used to commission the local artists with richly shaped and decorated sets, to make obvious their wealth to the visitors.
A set could be made by a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 7 pieces, each with a specific function, that fit nicely one into the other to form a single object. It often consisted of a shallow bowl for the meat, a deep bowl or a footed bowl for the broth, a sauce boat or an egg holder, a bread dish and a spice or salt dish, but the composition of the piece was chosen according to the culinary habits and the wealth of the family.
