A sweet antique ironstone serving plate from the Gien manufacture, this piece has a deep blue transfer border of little beach rosette sprays, leaves, and buds. The pattern, Arcachon, is named after a coastal town in the southwest of France. Beautiful on display, I love using these serving pieces for everyday dining, holding fruit, or even on the dressing table with favorite jewelry.
The back is stamped with the pattern name, "Arcachon" and "Porcelaine Opaque de Gien, Terre de Fer" (see 7th photo).
Dimensions: approx. 28.5 cm x 3.5 cm / 11.25 in x 1.4 in
These pieces wear their history like all vintage pieces which only adds to their story. This plate is in very good condition with no chips or cracks. Some faint crazing to the surface glaze hat has slightly darkened (see 8th photo), small color imperfections from manufacture (see 4th photo), and slight transfer imperfections on the rim (see 9th photo). No part of the transfer is blurry.
Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!
