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.
These Plates are so much fun. Hand Painted in Classic 1970's Modern Mid-Century Colours, the Images are Bold and Striking, and would be the perfect addition to your Retro, Modern Mid Century Collection.
'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.
The Plates are Vintage White with a Red Trim and the design shows a 'Fondue' Table Scene with the Cooking Pot of Melted Cheese alongside a Bottle of Red Wine and Two Glasses of Red Wine, the Pepper Grinder and Forks at the ready!.........the attention to detail is fabulous as the Wine Bottle Label even shows a 'Vineyard'.......
The plates are divided into Six Sections for different sauces and have the words 'La Fondue' at the bottom of the largest section.
Each Plate carries the Gien France' Mark and are marked ''Decor Garanti Inaltérable. Paint a Main. Cuisson à 1150c CORDON ROUGE''.
They are 21cms diameter (8.2 inches approx.)
None of the plates have chips but all do have an aging 'hairline crackle' to the glaze, which is to be expected with the age of this set. The 'crackle' covers most of the surface of the plates which, considering their age, does not in any way detract from their beauty; and in fact adds to the charm and authenticity of these gorgeous items.
................Bring on the Cheese.................et Voila!.........
