Dating from the 1970's this platter has been 'spray' glazed in a warm ochre/caramel majolica glaze. It is wonderfully tactile with 'ridges' reminiscent of scallop shells, showing through with cream edges. There cannot be a more stylish way to serve your seafood course at dinner parties.
Originally designed as a table centerpiece for serving 'Coquilles St. Jacques', (scallops) the platter has twelve 'scallop shell-shaped' depressions and two 'lemon wells' in the center, where you stylishly serve your lemon ready for squeezing onto the seafood. It could also be used for oysters.
The Platter weighs 1.1kg (2.4 lbs) and measures 33cms/13" diameter.
It is in excellent condition, with no chips at all. There is the slightest hint of some 'hairline crackle' to the glaze, on the underside, but this is to be expected with the age of the platter and does not in any way detract from the beauty or functionality of this gorgeous item.
