WINDOW DISPLAY #10 FOIS GRAS TERRINES

This window display contains an exquisite collection of foie-gras terrines. Clearly, they are artifacts that belong to the French gastronomic tradition. These colorful terrines were usually drawn in zoomorphic form; clearly the animal depicted indicates the type of foie gras contained in the terrine, whether it was fawn, bull, wild boar, or duck, or rabbit. Almost all of them are produced in France or Portugal for the French market, except for the terrine at n.1, of Italian production: a first Ginori manufacture of the early twentieth century. They are very rare, as the Italian market was not very receptive to this type of table decoration!
