I recently bought pair of bowls, measuring 10" in diameter, and would like to know where they are from. Are the man and woman french? Are they old? Are they valuable? I paid 20 for them.
I've tried my best to take a few photos of the hallmarks.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
as much as possible about them.
Thanks,

Richard
