This is a full dinnerware set of eight '"game" plates and serving platter. The perfect gift for anyone who enjoys hunting and cooking their quarry.
The plates measure 24cms (9½") diameter, and each weighs 400 gms (14 ozs.) They all have a delicate, fluted, edge with a "gilt line" border. There are four different designs on the eight plates, two of each design, showing a Fox, Wild Boars, Rabbits and Hare, in their natural habitats. The colors and details of the illustrations are incredibly accurate and realistic.
The muted palette of subtle autumnal tones gives these plates a sophisticated, timeless quality.
The platter measures 36cms (14") long x 26cms (10¼") wide and is heavy, weighing, 1 kgs (2.2 lbs.) It has a gorgeous scene showing Deer at the edge of a forest.
This platter would make an ideal table centerpiece for serving a beautifully prepared haunch of venison. It would also be a wonderful party or buffet piece, for serving patés/ canapés /entrée/ hors d'oeuvre (starter) courses, to add style to your setting.
They are all in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. They all have the "SFP, Société de Porcelaine Française" mark on the undersides. There is some very, very slight "wear" to a couple of the motifs, and the gilding, 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.
