Set of Six Raclette plates by Gien, France.
This is a complete set of Grès de Gien, stoneware, "La Raclette" dishes from the 1970s.

These charming little dishes show the Raclette cheese wheel, alongside steaming hot potatoes, gherkins, pickled onions, mushrooms, ground black pepper and salt ready for serving. It is accompanied by a glass of beer!
The dishes are numbered One to Six and measure 17cms (6½" approx.) diameter.
They are in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks.
They have an absolutely classic 1970's design and colour scheme.

The name "raclette" (pronounced rah-klett in its native French) refers to a meal and to a type of cheese with the same name. The traditional dish can be described as melted cheese eaten with boiled (or roasted) potatoes with small gherkins and pickled onions.
The Cheese 'Raclette' is a semi-hard cow's milk swiss cheese that is usually fashioned into a wheel of about 6 kg (13lbs).

A Raclette meal is a very social occasion, in much the same way as a Fondue, and was very popular in the 1970s. It is still very popular today in France and, with the tradition originating in Switzerland, Raclette, is one of Switzerland's best loved national dishes.
