This set of six vintage fish plates and platter are the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys fishing or cooking fish dishes. An ideal gift for fish chefs.
The plates are in a square design, softened at the edges. They all have a gold "gilded" edge pattern trim and measure 22cms/ 8½".
They each weigh 450gms/ 1lbs. There are six different, stunningly vibrant, designs illustrating various fish swimming amongst reeds and seashells.
The platter is also in a softened oval shape, with the same border design. It measures 42.5cms/16¾" x 26.5cms/ 10½", and weighs 1.2kgs/ 2.6lbs. It has the most detailed illustration of Trout swimming amongst river weed, shells and reeds. The colours are muted, subtle grey/greens and the fish are accurately represented, with spots and golden yellow on the undersides. The fins and scales of the fish have been 'picked out' in fine detail.
They are all in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. All have the "Longchamp" France mark on the undersides.
A couple of the plates have the beginnings of some slight "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. They have many years of service yet to offer.
What perfect presentation plates for the ones that didn't get away!
