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

Price includes shipping - see shipping notes. This is a gorgeous hand- painted ceramic cheese platter with a twisted wrought iron handle, which can be unscrewed for ease of storage, and transportation. Pornic is a commune in South-Eastern Brittany, in western France and "La Faïencerie" in Pornic produces an extremely wide range of earthenware. The pottery is a family enterprise founded in 1947 and specializes in hand painted ceramics, like this beautiful cheese platter. Dating from the 1970's it measures 27cms (10½") diameter and has been designed in a light and delicate design, with a limited palette of deep green, ochre, violet and bordeaux red against an antique/vintage white background. You can 'feel' the delicacy with which the potter has applied the brushstrokes, individually, to form the fern leaves and flowers, it is entitled 'Printemps' (Spring). It is in perfect condition, with no chips, scratches or cracks. On the underside it is marked MBFA Pornic, Peint à la Main, "Printemps" (Manufacture Bretonne de Faïences Artistiques (M.B.F.A.) of Pornic, hand painted, "Spring") The handle has an authentic patina, consistent with the age of the metal. The perfect gift for cheese lovers. Why not give this plate as a gift to your dinner host/hostess along with some French cheeses and a bottle of Bordeaux wine..........Perfection!................
