Tiggy & Pip
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.

Description

These two wonderful Escargot (Snail) Serving Dishes from the 1970's. They are decorated in a classic creamy yellow glaze with terracotta brown edges and handles. Each one has six 'wells' to hold the cooked snails in place. They are a perfect 'Oven to Table' set, allowing you to cook and serve from the same dishes without needing to transfer the snails, keeping all the flavour of the cooking juices and giving you beautiful presentation. You could use them to serve Canapés/Nibbles at dinner parties or as a 'Designer Egg Tray' as the 'wells' are the perfect size to store Eggs! Each Dish measures: 11.5cms /4½" diameter (16cms /6" to the handles) They all have 'Made in France, Modèle Déposé' stamped into the undersides. They are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks, there is some 'hairline crackling' to the glazes, which is normal for the age of these dishes, and in no way detracts from the functionality or beauty of them Snails are traditionally served in a Rich Garlic Butter - Here is an example recipe if you'd like to try cooking this French Classic Cuisine at home: ESCARGOTS À LA BOURGUIGNONNE (SNAILS IN GARLIC–HERB BUTTER) Ingredients: 16 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened, 1⁄4 cup (minced) flat-leaf parsley, 1 tbsp. white wine, 1 tsp. cognac or French brandy, 3 cloves garlic (minced), 1 shallot (minced), salt, freshly ground black pepper, and nutmeg, to taste. 36 snails. In a bowl, whisk together butter, parsley, wine, cognac, garlic, and shallots with a fork. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to let the flavours meld. Heat oven to 400°. Spoon about 1⁄2 tsp. of butter mixture into each snail shell. Push a snail into each shell; fill shells with remaining butter mixture. Cover bottom of a 9" x 13" baking pan with a layer of rock salt. Arrange snail shells butter side up on bed of salt and bake until butter sizzles, 10–12 minutes. Serve the snails into the dishes, accompanied with bread to soak up the butter...........et voilà!...... We offer FREE worldwide shipping.
