This is an amazing set of 8 mixed fish plates, in eight different fish designs, a "ready-to-display" set for your china hutch/vintage dresser.
The perfect shabby chic plate collection, they are ideal for decorating kitchen walls or for celebrations/ weddings/ shabby chic dinner parties.
This is a 'one of a kind' plate collection, sumptuously ornate plates, rare and collectible.
All these plates are French, dating from the 1920's, to the 1970's. They all have fluted, gold "gilt" edges.
Altogether they weigh 3.6kgs/ 8 lbs!
The set is made up of:
One oval fish serving platter measuring 38cms/ 15" x 26cms/ 10¼". It weighs 900gms/ 2lbs and has the 'MOULIN DES LOUPS 'ORCHIES' NORD' France mark on the underside. It has a delicate, fluted, gilt edge border and a gorgeous illustration of a Pike swimming amongst reeds and shells. The colors and details of the motif are incredibly accurate and realistic. It is in excellent condition with no chips. There is some "wear" to the motif, from a few light surface scratches, consistent with its age and use, but nothing that detracts from its beauty or functionality.
Three "Longchamp" plates, measuring 22cms/ 8½". These plates are in a square design, softened at the edges.
Two "Lunéville" plates, with a wide "ribbed" border, measuring 24cms/ 9 ¾" diameter.
Two "Lunéville" plates (these plates are unmarked but from a "Lunéville" set), with a "cross-hatched" border pattern, measuring 23.5cms/ 9¼" diameter.
They are all in excellent vintage condition, with no chips or cracks. Being similar in size they are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. They do have "hairline crackle" to the glazes, which is to be expected with the age of these plates. They have some slight "wear" to the gilding but this in no way effects the beauty or quality of this beautiful plate set. They have many years of service yet to offer.
