Sumptuously ornate, they will have a huge impact at the dinner table with their vibrant illustrations and sparkly 'gilt' trim.
The plates measure 23cms/ 9" diameter, and each weighs 400gms/ 14 ozs.
There are six different designs on the twelve plates, two of each design, illustrating various fish swimming amongst reeds in lakes/rivers. The colors and details of the illustrations are incredibly accurate and realistic.
The platter is extra long, measuring 54cms/ 21¼" x 21cms/ 8¼" wide and is heavy, weighing, 1.6 kgs/ 3.5 lbs!
It has the most detailed illustration of two Trout swimming. The colours are muted, subtle greens and grey/blues. The fish are accurately represented, with spots and 'hints' of pink and yellow on the undersides. The fins and tails of the fish have been 'picked out' in fine detail.
This platter 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 canapes and nibbles, to add elegance to your setting. It looks so impressively stunning it will be a real 'talking point'.
They are all in excellent condition. The platter and eleven of the plates have no chips or cracks. There is some very slight wear to the edge gilding, which is to be expected with the age of this set. Just one plate has two microscopic edge 'nicks' - please see the last photo. These 'nicks' are on the underside of the edge and therefore cannot be seen from the top, when in use. It has not affected the 'gilt line border at all and in no way detracts from the beauty and functionality of this amazing plate set. They all have the 'Porcelaine de Sologne' mark on the undersides.
Plates sets such as this one are increasingly rare and hard to find and this set has many years of service yet to offer.
What perfect presentation plates for the ones that didn't get away!.....................
