RESERVED - Antique French Wisteria Serving Platter

Sorry, this item has sold.

RESERVED FOR SHIRLEY - This beautiful antique French platter was produced by the Gien company and features a beautiful transferware pattern of deep teal wisteria branches with a butterfly floating in the center. Perfect for everyday serving at the table, it would also be lovely holding treasured objects on an entry table or fruit on the kitchen counter.

The back is stamped with the pattern name, "Glycine" (wisteria) and "Medailles d'Or, Faiencerie de Gien, Diplomes d'Honneur" (see 8th photo). The design of the stamp dates the platter to after 1875.


Dimensions: approx. 25 cm x 34.5 cm x 4 cm high / 9.75 in x 13.5 in x 1.5 in high


These pieces wear their history like all vintage pieces which only adds to their story. This platter is in very good condition with no chips or cracks. Some faint scratches to the surface glaze from cutting (see 7th photo) and one small imperfection that stained lightly with time on the front (see 6th photo) and one on the back rim (see 9th photo). The quality of the transfer is very good with no smudges.


Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!

Q. What is a 'brocante'?

A. 'Brocante' is the French word for a flea and antiques market. I discovered the joy of them more than 10 years ago when I came to visit my now husband for the first time in his native France. And I love them just as much today as that first visit all those years ago!

Q. Will you search the French brocantes for a specific piece/type of item for me?

A. I'd be happy to! Feel free to reach out if you are looking for something specific. Although, because of the very nature of vintage brocantes and flea markets, I can never guarantee when or if I will find an item, I'm always happy to look and keep a running list of customer requests.

Q. Can you reserve an item for me?

A. Yes. Contact me with the item(s) you are interested in, and what your time frame is, and I can put a reserve on them for you. I ask that you make your purchase within the month on reserved items. A reserve is non-bidding. Simply send me a message to cancel.
