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 stunning set of six oyster plates by the Faience de St. Amand factory.
Each plate has been 'spray' glazed individually, so each one varies slightly from the others in color and intensity and is completely unique and original. Some are deeper green then others. The deep green areas contrast beautifully with the warm, 'speckled' creamy white colored base glaze. They are fascinating to look at and wonderfully tactile, with 'ridges' reminiscent of oyster shells. There cannot be a more stylish way to serve your seafood course at dinner parties.
Each plate has six oyster shell shaped 'wells', around a raised central well, where you stylishly serve your lemon ready for squeezing onto the oysters. They could also be used for scallops.
The six plates are chunky, weighing 700gms / 1.5 lbs! each and measure 24.5cms/ 9½" diameter.
They are dishwasher safe (Garanti Spécial Lave Vaisselle) and have the 'Faience de St. Amand, France' mark on the undersides.
They are all in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. They have the beginnings of 'fine hairline crackle' to the glazes which is to be expected with the age of these plates and does not in any way detract from their beauty or functionality. They have many years of service yet to offer.
This set really is a rare 'find' indeed and simply beautiful..............
