VHRN Newsnote: 19th century Daughter of Charity Tisaniere acquired

The Vincentiana Collection in the Archives/Special Collections Department of DePaul University's Richardson Library recently acquired this rare example of a mid to late 19th century French porcelain tisaniere (teapot) molded in the figure of a Daughter of Charity. This quaint example illustrates the popularity of the Daughters of Charity as the proto-typical "bonne soeurs" of 19th century France.
