This is a set of six French, cheese plates illustrated with famous French cheeses, by Gien.
What a great present for a cheese and wine connoisseur.
Rare and collectible, there cannot be a more stylish way to serve your cheese course at dinner parties than on these plates.
Some of the most famous French cheeses are here, Brie, Munster, Camembert, Emmental, Roquefort and Pyramide.
These plates will be a real 'talking point' at your dinner party and would also make the perfect gift for your host or hostess, a perfect house warming present too.
What a great excuse to buy a bottle of Bordeaux, Sancerre or Bergerac wine and try them all!
Each Plate has the 'Gien France' mark, and reads ''Decor Garanti Inaltérable. Paint a Main (hand painted.) Cuisson à 1150c CORDON ROUGE'' on the underside.
Each plate measures 19cms/7½" diameter and altogether they weigh 1.6kgs/ 3.5lbs.
Please see the last photo, showing a microscopic edge 'nick' in the 'Munster' plate. It is barely detectable at normal viewing distance. There are no other chips or cracks, some slight wear to the wording on a couple of the plates and they have the beginnings of ageing 'hairline crackle' to the glazes, which is to be expected with the age of this set, and does not in any way detract from their beauty or functionality; in fact it adds to the charm and authenticity of these gorgeous plates.
