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' trim.
The plates measure 24cms/ 9½" diameter, and each weighs 400gms/ 14 ozs. There are six different designs on the twelve plates, two of each design, illustrating various fish swimming amongst reeds in lakes/rivers. The colors and details of the illustrations are incredibly accurate and realistic.
The platter is extra long, measuring 57cms/ 22½" x 22cms/ 8½" wide and is heavy, weighing, 1.5 kgs/ 3.3 lbs. It has the most detailed illustration of two Trout swimming. The colours are muted, subtle greens and grey/blues. The fish are accurately represented, with spots and 'hints' of pink and yellow on the undersides. The fins and tails of the fish have been 'picked out' in fine detail.
This platter would make an ideal table centerpiece for serving a beautifully prepared Trout, Salmon or other fish. It would also be a wonderful party or buffet piece, for serving stylish canapes and nibbles, to add elegance to your setting. 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 trout illustration as the platter. Perfect for your fish sauce accompaniment!
They are all in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. They all have the 'Chauvigny Porcelain' mark on the undersides. Just one of the plates has a microscopic edge 'nick' on the underside, not viewable from the top and barely detectable.
Plates sets such as this one are increasingly rare and hard to find and this set has many years of service yet to offer.
What perfect presentation plates for the ones that didn't get away!.....................
