This is a listing for ONE antique early to mid 20th Century ironstone French serving dish. A total of four are available to choose from, each with a different coloured rim and monetary value.

Designed to be used in French cafés and bars, these little saucers are very difficult to source. Dating to the first half of the 20th Century, they were used when serving drinks and small plates of food to indicate the price of the items purchased. The prices, in French francs, featured on different plates, and the value was also indicated by the different coloured rims.

These are beautiful vintage items to use as trinket plates or serving dishes in the home now. The classic French Art Deco typography really makes them stand out as unique vintage pieces.

All in fair condition for their age, this is quite impressive as they would have been used on a daily basis. There is some wear to the transfers on them all but they are all still recognisable. There are also some minor dents to the rims in places.

Most notably, there is a star crack to the glaze on the base of the green 8f plate and a firing crack to the 1f25 plate. However, both are structurally sound.
