Extra Long, French, Porcelain, "Lunéville" Fish Platter With Gilded Trim.
This is an extra long, rare, oval fish serving platter measuring 60cms/ 23½" long x 23cms/ 9" wide. It is deep too, 5cms/ 2", so that the fish can be served with sauces and dressings, without risk of spillage.
It is enormous weighing 1.6kgs/ 3.5 lbs!
In excellent condition, with no chips, cracks or scratches. There is some slight 'wear' to the gold trim, at the edge, which is to be expected with the age of this platter.
Lunéville Faience is one of the most famous French pottery manufacturers. It has been located in Lunéville, Lorraine, France since 1731.
This 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'.
It has a tactile, fluted, edge with a wide, 'ribbed', border and 'gilt' line trim. The larger illustration, to the right end of the platter is of a gorgeous Pike swimming amongst reeds and shells, with a smaller Perch swimming to the left. The colors and details of the motif are incredibly accurate and realistic, in a subtle palette of greens and muted browns/ochres.
Elegantly understated and stylishly sophisticated.
Very collectible, it is an ideal gift for fish chefs. Perfect for fish lovers the world over it would make a truly original present for anyone who loves fishing and cooking fish.
What a perfect presentation plate for the one that didn't get away!.....................
