Ceramic floral in Saint Remy les Chevreuse Cemetery
A rich site I found while I was searching for ceramic funerary flowers!: Sleeping Gardens and Other Resting Places-http://sleepinggardens.blogspot.com/2011/09/ceramic-flowers.html …and, thus found: Céramiques de France, one of the few producers of these gorgeous memorials. You’ll see them all over the place in French cemeteries.
