This is an absolutely charming boat shaped dish, made in Brittany, France, by the BCI (Bretagne Céramique Industrie) from the 1980's.
Glazed creamy white on the inside and navy blue on the outside, it is beautifully detailed in the exact shape of a fishing boat, flat at the back and rising gently at the front, with ridges reminiscent of boat timbers.
It is extra large, measuring 30cms/ 11¾" long x 22cms/ 1½" wide x 10cms/ 4"( at its deepest), and weighs 1.4kgs/ 3lbs.
In perfect condition, with no chips, scratches or cracks. It is clearly marked 'BCI, Fabriqué en Bretagne' on the based and numbered: 'C 4.04.21', as these were limited edition ceramics.
It was originally made to be used as oven to table cookware but I've styled it as a bathroom planter, as it would make a great accessory in a nautical bathroom/washroom setting. Perfect for storing towels, candles and soaps. It would make an unusual gift for anyone who loves 'sea themed' interior décor. Perfect for beach huts and holiday homes by the sea.
