Tiggy & Pip is a vintage home décor shop by mother and son décor and interior design loving duo, Tiggy and Pip Coudray.
With a shared love of all things French and vintage we opened our shop in 2011.
Based in France, between Cognac and La Rochelle, we source unusual items from recent French and European history. Everyday French household items from the 1880's to 1980's which, although at one time were plentiful, are now increasingly rare and collectible. We source specialist props for films/photo shoots and interior designers. Many of our 'finds' are currently on display in a number of top New York restaurants and Hollywood apartments.
Price includes shipping - see shipping notes.
This is a fabulous set of mid century fondue plates in a 'Fondue Bourguignonne' design. These plates would be ideal for anyone who loves cooking outdoors and wants to add a bit of 'French chic' to their barbecue parties.
Each plate is divided into five sections (four smaller segments for different spices/sauces and one larger well for the cubed meat or cheese), they stack neatly on top of each other for storage.
'Fondue' is a Swiss dish of melted cheese served in a communal pot over a portable stove heated with a candle or spirit lamp, and eaten by dipping bread into the cheese using long-stemmed forks. Fondue parties became very popular in the 1970's. Meat fondue's are based on the same principal with hot fat being melted in the pot and then small chunks/cubes of meats or fish being dipped until cooked.
Burgundy fondue is a fried beef fondue dish, fried in oil, and traditionally served with either a Tartare Sauce, Tomato Sauce, or Piment or Harissa spices.
The plates all have the 'L'Hirondelle, Porcelaine' (the 'Swallow' Porcelain manufacturer based in Mehun sur Yèvre, France) mark on the undersides.
They each measure 25cms/ 9¾" diameter. and weigh 600gms/1.3lbs!
They are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. There is some very slight wear on one or two of the cows but this is not noticeable at normal viewing distance and in no way detract from their functionality.
We've lots of other fondue plates and accessories if you'd like to take a look.
