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 is a stunning set of twelve seafood plates and platter.
Dating from the 1970's each plate has been glazed individually, so each one varies slightly from the others in color and intensity and is completely unique and original. Some are deeper 'vanilla' then others. The warm, 'speckled' creamy glaze has a matt finish and makes them fascinating to look at, and wonderfully tactile, with 'ridges' reminiscent of scallop and oyster shells. There cannot be a more stylish way to serve your seafood course at dinner parties.
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, especially in large sets.
Originally designed for serving 'Coquilles St. Jacques', (Scallops) the twelve plates all have six, scallop shell-shaped, depressions around an oyster shell-shaped 'lemon well' in the centre, where you stylishly serve your lemon ready for squeezing onto the seafood. There is also a larger matching platter with twelve 'scallop wells' and two 'lemon wells' for a table centrepiece, where extra Coquilles St. Jacques can be presented. They could also be used for Oysters.
The platter weighs 1kg (2.2 lbs) and measures 33cms/ 13" diameter.
It is in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks.
The twelve plates each weigh 600gms (1.3 lbs) and measure 25cms/ 9¾" diameter.
The plates are all in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.
This set really is a rare 'find' indeed and simply beautiful..............Complete French Chic Elegance!
