This is a dinnerware set of eight 'game' plates, serving platter and sauce boat. Perfect for shabby chic dining!
Sumptuously ornate with their gorgeous, super shiny, glaze, and 'gilt' edges. They will have a huge impact at the dinner table with their vibrant illustrations and sparkly 'gilt' line trim.
Now very rare and collectible, and increasingly hard to find in large sets, these plates are in amazing condition.
The dinner plates are large, measuring 26cms/ 10¼" diameter, and each weighs 500gms/ 1.1 lbs. There are five different designs on the eight dinner plates, two each of Pheasant, Rabbit and Mallard Drake designs, one each of Partridge and Mallard Hen design. The colors and details of the illustrations are incredibly accurate and realistic, showing the birds and rabbit in their natural habitats.
The muted palette of subtle greens/blues and autumnal browns gives these plates a sophisticated, timeless quality.
The platter measures 39cms/ 15¼" long x 27cms/ 10½" wide and is heavy, weighing, 1.2kgs/ 2.6 lbs. It has a gorgeous illustration of a Ducks flying over reeds on a lake.
This platter would make an ideal table centerpiece for serving a beautifully prepared magret de canard or confit de canard main course. It would also be a wonderful party or buffet piece, for serving foie gras entrée/ hors d'oeuvre (starter) courses. It looks so impressively stunning it will be a real 'talking point'.
The sauce boat measures 24cms/ 9 ½" long x 17cms/ 6¾" wide (saucer) and is 11cms/ 4¼" deep. It weighs 700gms/ 1.5 lbs. It is decorated with the same rabbit illustration as the dinner plates on one side, and the pheasant illustration on the other.
They are all in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. The gilt edges are pristine. There is some very, very slight 'wear' to a couple of the motifs, surface scratches through use, but these are barely detectable and not noticeable at normal viewing distance, they in no way detract from their functionality or beauty.
Plates sets such as this one are increasingly rare and hard to find and this set has many years of service yet to offer.
These plates would look wonderful displayed in a hunting lodge / country manor setting.
