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.
Dating from the 1970's these plates have been glazed individually, so each one varies slightly from the others in colour and intensity. Some are more 'caramel' then others, whose colours verge on 'ochre/golden yellow'. Wonderfully tactile with 'ridges' reminiscent of scallop shells, where the base 'cream' glaze has been allowed to come through, there cannot be a more stylish way to serve your seafood course at dinner parties!
Originally designed for serving 'Coquilles St. Jacques', (Scallops) the six plates all have six 'shell-shaped' depressions around a 'lemon well' in the centre, where you stylishly serve your lemon ready for squeezing onto the seafood.
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. They are collectors pieces, now very sought after and hard to find. They could also be used for Oysters.
The six plates each weigh 600gms (1.3 lbs) and measure 24.5cms/ 9½" diameter.
The plates are all in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. They have the slightest hint of some 'hairline crackle' to the glazes, on the undersides, but this is to be expected with the age of these plates and does not in any way detract from their beauty or functionality. They have many years of service yet to offer.
