Wow!........These were an exciting 'find'!.......from way back in the 1970's, when 'Prawn Cocktail' starters were popular and serving Mini Gherkins and Olives showed the height of sophistication!
A Classic Mid-Century Modern Set of Six Gorgeous little 'Avocado' Shaped Dishes decorated with Serving Suggestions for your 'Soirée Apéro Dinatoire' (Early Evening Drinks Party).
Designed to be used for the 'Starter' course or 'Entrée' they are really unusual and stylish.
A Great Talking Point at the Dinner Table.
The dishes measure 13cms (5.1 inches) long -to the point, 8cm (3.1 inches) at their widest, and they are 4cms (1.5 inches) deep.
The Hexagonal Wooden Serving Platter, on which the dishes sit, has six carved 'indentations' to hold the bowls in place and stop the dishes from slipping off when being handed around. It measures 31cms diameter at its widest (12.2 inches approx.) The handle unscrews for ease of storage and transportation.
The illustrations on the dishes show various 'Idées' for what the bowls could contain, Slices of Fois Gras/Paté, Chorizo/Sausisson Slices, Black and Green Olives, Mushrooms, Hard Boiled Eggs and Tomatoes, Mini Gerkins/Cornichons, Onions and Radishes - all the ingredients you need to make your 1970's party start with a 'Wow' Factor!
The designs are Fresh, Bold, Funky and Fun and once you have finished eating and the dishes are empty they still look wonderful sitting on the table.
They are all in great condition, with no visible chips, scratches or cracks and carry the 'Lourioux Porcelaine Création Ph. Deshoulières France' mark.
Go on!..........Throw a 1970's Themed Party and impress your friends with some seriously 'Retro' Canapés - all you need are the dishes to serve them in!.........et voilà!...............
