This is a full dinnerware set of twelve 'game' plates, serving platter and sauce boat. Perfect for shabby chic dining!
Sumptuously ornate with their gorgeous, super shiny, glaze, 'gilt' edges and wide, 'filigree lace', gold border pattern. They will have a huge impact at the dinner table with their vibrant illustrations and sparkly 'gilt' line trim.
Now very rare and collectible, and increasingly hard to find in large sets, these plates are in amazing condition for their 70 year age.
The plates measure 24cms/ 9½" diameter, and each weighs 500gms/ 1.1 lbs. There are six different designs on the twelve plates, two of each design, showing Pheasant, Partridge, Snipe and Ducks, in their natural habitats. The colors and details of the illustrations are incredibly accurate and realistic. There is also a gorgeous running Rabbit design.
The muted palette of subtle greens/blues and autumnal browns gives these plates a sophisticated, timeless quality.
The platter measures 39cms/ 15¼" long x 24cms/ 9½" wide and is heavy, weighing, 1.1kgs/ 2.42 lbs. It has a gorgeous illustration of a Ducks flying over reeds on a lake.
This platter would make an ideal table centerpiece for serving a beautifully prepared magret de canard or confit de canard main course. It would also be a wonderful party or buffet piece, for serving foie gras entrée/ hors d'oeuvre (starter) courses. It looks so impressively stunning it will be a real 'talking point'.
The sauce boat measures 20cms/ 7¾" long (from the handle to the pouring lip) x 8cms/ 3" wide and is 8.5cms/ 3¼" deep. It weighs 300gms/ 10.5 ozs. It is decorated with the same duck illustration as the platter on one side, and the partridge illustration on the other.
They are all in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. They all have the 'Chauvigny Porcelain' mark on the undersides. There is some very, very slight 'wear' to a couple of the motifs but these are barely detectable and not noticeable at normal viewing distance, they in no way detract from their functionality or beauty.
Plates sets such as this one are increasingly rare and hard to find and this set has many years of service yet to offer.
These plates would look wonderful displayed in a hunting lodge / country manor setting.
