Set of Six Limoges Porcelain Fish Plates. Shell Shaped Fish Dinner Plates.
This is a really unusual set of six vintage, Limoges porcelain, fish plates. Shell shaped, fish dinner plates.
They are very collectible, with the illustration of a Roach fish swimming in a river, accurately represented, with the fins, scales and tail in fine detail. Most impressive is the way the water has been "brushed" across the fish to give the impression of its movement through the water. There are a few sprigs of "dill" floating through the "ridges" of the shell. The scalloped edges and ridges, reminiscent of scallop shells, make them tactile and alluring. Stylishly understated, they will add a timeless elegance to your fish dinner course.
All in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. They all have the "Limoges, France" porcelain mark on the undersides.
The plates measure 24.5cms/ 9½" diameter and each weighs 500gms/ 1.1 lbs.
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.
