The story

Since antiquity, the finger rinse has been a small container containing perfumed water or a few lemon slices in which guests dip their fingers to clean them. In Roman times, apart from meals taken with a spoon (soup), food was seized with the fingers and carried to the mouth. These cups remain in the tableware of the French and European elites since the Renaissance. The motif of flowers are an echo to the smell of the water in which they soak their hand that was traditionally perfumed.
