They are very collectible, with the illustrations showing both freshwater fish and river flower species alongside each other.
The platter is large measuring 42cms (16½") long x 28 cms (11") wide and weighs 1.3kgs (2.8 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. An Iris sits to the side of the platter, the mauve of the background hills in the landscape complementing the purple of its petals. Most impressive is the way the 'water' has been 'brushed' across the fish to give the impression of its movement through the river.
This elegant 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 canapés and nibbles, to add elegance to your setting. It is ideal for large catering events such as weddings, banquets and big family gatherings. It looks so impressively stunning it will be a real 'talking point'.
The plates measure 25cms (9 ¾") diameter and each weigh 450gms (15.8 ozs.) There are five different designs illustrating various fish swimming amongst reeds in lakes/rivers. Each design has a different flower on the side, such as Water Lilies, Water Iris and Marsh Marigolds. The landscapes in the backgrounds show a variety of trees, marshlands and hills.
The plates and platter are all in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks or scratches and have the 'Haut Berry Porcelaine' mark on the undersides. Please note that the platter has a 'spot' glazing flaw on the top edge (see photo), this has been present since manufacture and in no way detracts from the beauty or functionality of this magnificent set.
The perfect gift for anglers and fish lovers the world over. These would make a truly original present for anyone who loves fishing and cooking fish.
What perfect presentation plates for the ones that didn't get away!.....................
