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.
If you enjoy seafood then these are a 'must' for serving and tasting seafood. An exquisite gift for a seafood chef or an excellent house warming present for those living near the sea. These hand glazed plates are collectors pieces, now very sought after and hard to find.
Dating from the 1970's these plates have been majolica glazed in two-tone, golden caramel under warm ochre brown. Each one has been hand painted individually, so each 'shell' varies slightly from the others in color and intensity. They are wonderfully tactile with 'ridges' reminiscent of oyster/scallop shells and a beautiful 'crab' in the center. There cannot be a more stylish way to serve your seafood course at dinner parties.
Originally designed for serving 'Coquilles St. Jacques', (Scallops) or Huitres (Oysters) these plates have six 'shell-shaped' wells around a 'crab' (lemon well) in the centre, where you stylishly serve your lemons ready for squeezing onto the seafood. They could be used to display and serve many other sea foods such as crab, mussels, langoustine or gambas and as table centerpieces for a dinner party or banquet.
Each plate weighs 1kg (2.2 lbs) and measures 24.5cms/9½" diameter. They have the 'Atelier du Revernay. France' mark on the underside.
They are in great condition, with no chips. There is some 'hairline crackling' to the glazes on the undersides, consistent with the age of the plates, which does not in any way detract from the beauty or quality of them.
A really rare 'find' indeed and simply beautiful..............
