Tiggy & Pip
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! This is a very rare 1960's, majolica glazed, mid century platter/ fruit bowl. Anyone who collects majolica glazed mid century pottery would love this wonderful piece. It would make a gorgeous table centerpiece for any rustic farmhouse or rural country cottage kitchen, with an autumnal color scheme. Great for serving stylish canapés with before dinner drinks. A beautiful platter for seafood and fruit displays for fall/autumn themed weddings and banquets. It would look stunning on an entrance hall table for storing keys etc. This bowl has been hand-painted in an expressive mid-century modern, highly textured design that typically characterizes the Vallauris region of South-Eastern France's pottery, celebrated for its beautiful glazes and extraordinary shapes. The deep 'chocolate brown' base glaze of this bowl has been overlaid with a gorgeous 'fiery red/orange' 'foam' glaze, which radiates like lava to the 'scalloped' edges. Shaped as a giant shell it has tactile ridges leading around to a 'swirly' concave segment. This lovely round section is where you could serve your sauce or dip to accompany the appetizers that fill the bowl. It would be a real 'talking point' when serving the canapés alongside your Aperitifs. It is large measuring 36cms/14" x 32cms/12½", at its widest points, and is 6cms/2¼" deep. It is heavy weighing 2kgs/ 4.4lbs! It is in pristine, perfect condition with no chips, scratches or cracks. ..............We love it!................. We ship worldwide.
