This set of six vintage French fish plates by Gien are the perfect gift for anglers, rare and collectible they date from the 1970's.

All these plates are in excellent condition, for their 50 year age, with no chips or cracks. They do have the beginnings of ageing "hairline crackle" to the glazes, which is to be expected with the age of this set, and does not in any way detract from their beauty or functionality; in fact it adds to the charm and authenticity of these gorgeous plates.

They are antique white in colour, with "Gien, France' Poissons d'eau douce" stamped on the undersides. There is a microscopic amount of wear to one of the motifs.
They are very flat in shape, with a subtle "gilt"' line edge finish.
Each plate measure 23.5cms / 9¼" diameter and each weighs 500gms / 1.1 lbs.

Gien was founded in 1821 and is today the number one producer of the highest quality earthenware in France.

There are six different designs illustrating various pairs of fish swimming amongst water weeds in lakes/rivers. The colours are muted, subtle greens and grey/blues. The fish are accurately represented, dynamic in movement, with gorgeous detailing on the heads, fins and tails.

What perfect presentation plates for the ones that didn't get away!
