The perfect, interesting and unusual, fish plate collection, they are ideal for kitchen and dining room wall displays.
This is a 'one of a kind' plate collection, timeless and sophisticated, rare and collectible.
Altogether they weigh 3.2kgs/ 7 lbs!
This set is made up of:
One oval platter measuring 35cms/13¾" long x 23cms/9" wide. It weighs 800gms/1.76 lbs. It has the "Winterling Bavaria Markleuthen'' mark on the underside. The fish is accurately represented, dynamic in movement, with gorgeous detailing on the head, scales, fins and tail. The colors are muted grey/blues, subtle pinks and soft greens. Most impressive is the way the 'water' has been 'brushed' across the fish to give the impression of its movement through the river.
Three "MOULIN DES LOUPS 'ORCHIES' NORD, France" plates, measuring 24cms/9½" diameter. They are deep sided, 2.5cms/1", so that the fish can be served with sauces and dressings, without risk of spillage. There is so much to see in these plates, jellyfish and tropical fish in the backgrounds, alongside sea urchins, mussels and langoustine/prawns around the edges.
Two "Société Française de Porcelaines - S.F.P, Berry Porcelaine, France" plates, measuring 24cms/9¾", with a pretty, tactile, raised/embossed "flowers" edge border pattern. It is rare to see plates with edible saltwater fish illustrations like these.
One "Fabrique Charlemagne, Porcelaine Fine, depuis 1883" plate measuring 23.5cms/9¼" diameter. It has a tactile, fluted, "ribbed" border.
They are all in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. Aesthetically pleasing to the eye. They may have the faintest beginnings of 'hairline crackle' to the glazes, which is to be expected with the age of these plates, and in no way detracts from the beauty or quality of this beautiful plate set.
They have many years of service yet to offer.
