Artichoke Plate. Six 1970's French Artichoke Plates. White Majolica.
A set of six vintage artichoke plates, majolica glazed, with a gorgeous embossed floral motif. Stylishly understated for elegant dining.
The plates measure 24cms/ 9½” diameter and are divided into three sections to contain the artichoke, sauce and petal discards. To use them in the traditional way, place a cooked artichoke in the centre and a sauce or vinaigrette in the small compartment. The leaves, once eaten, can then be discarded into the larger remaining space. They stack easily into each other for storage and look simply stylish stacked on a country dresser.
The plates have embossed textures all over. The centre area has an artichoke flower design while the area for the discarded petals is covered with embossed artichoke leaf shapes.
You could easily use them to serve other vegetable and sauce combinations for serving stylish accompanying vegetable dishes at dinner parties.
They are classic "Jeanne d’Arc" Nordic/French country style crockery for a simple, Scandinavian look.
In amazing condition, with no chips or cracks. They have the "Apilco" porcelain mark on the undersides.
There are lots of different sauces to try with Artichokes here are three recipes if you would like to try them.
Each of these recipes makes enough sauce for four artichokes. Serve one artichoke per person.
In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, and 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice. Season with coarse salt and ground pepper.
In a blender, combine 2 large egg yolks, 1 tablespoon warm water, 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, and 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt; blend until frothy. Heat 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter in the microwave or in a small saucepan over medium heat until bubbly (do not let brown). With blender running, pour in hot butter in a very thin stream, blending until sauce is thick and emulsified.
In a small bowl, stir together 3/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise and 1 or 2 minced garlic cloves (a garlic press works best here). Season with coarse salt and ground pepper.
