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.

This rare, vintage two tier petit fours stand would make a truly stunning addition to your afternoon tea party.
It has a plated brass handle that can be unscrewed for ease of storage or transportation.
The two plates were made specifically for a cake stand and manufactured with reinforced, slightly thicker centers around the holes, showing the high quality design and production.
The two plates are deliberately mis-matched, the motifs sitting to one side of the plates allowing them to be seen whilst in use and the plates have been carefully selected and designed to form an aesthetic, delicate look.
The 'ochre caramel' base glaze of the plates have been overlaid with gorgeous, bright 'fiery' orange flower and 'ruby' red berries, that are slightly raised against the smooth background, forming a wonderfully tactile and alluring surface.
It is clearly marked 'Poët Laval' (Pronounced Pwet!) on the underside.
Poët Laval is a village in south eastern France, not far from Montelimar. It has long been involved in the production of pottery.
The base plate measures 17cms/ 6¾" diameter.
The top plate measures 12cms/ 4¾" diameter.
It stands 23cms/9" tall and weighs 600gms/ 1.3lbs.
It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks, it has one microscopic 'nick' at the edge of the bottom plate and there is some slight degradation to the gold patina on the metal, which is not noticeable at normal viewing distance, and in no way detract from the beauty or quality of this wonderful item.
All that this beautiful cake stand needs now is some delicate handmade chocolates or petit fours......et voilà!...............Bonne Appétit!........
