These are quite the most magnificent, attractive and stylish oyster plates we've ever seen! We adore them!
We found them in a Brocante in Angoulême, where a lady told me they had been in her family since the 1960's and used only on special occasions for family fêtes.
Each one has been 'hand painted' (it states this clearly in the mark on the base 'peint main') so each one is completely unique and original.
Dating from the 1960's they have a white 'foam' surface glaze layer that contrasts beautifully with the warm, 'speckled' beige colored background. They are fascinating to look at and each plate has seven 'wells', the central one being 'lemon' shaped, where you stylishly serve your lemon ready for squeezing onto the oysters. They could also be used for scallops.
They are all in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks or scratches. A couple of the plates have microscopic 'unglazed' spots at the edges, that are not noticeable at normal viewing distance and do not detract from the beauty or functionality of this gorgeous set.
They measure 25cms/ 9¾" diameter and each one weighs 600gms/ 1.3lbs.
The pottery factory in Niderviller, one of the oldest in Lorraine Region of France, is the only one in the region to have manufactured porcelain with Sarreguemines earthenware. The manufacture was created at Niderviller (Moselle) in 1735.
