French Advertising Brown Transferware Carp 🐟 Fish Platter Les Carpe Giennoise


Brand Gien

Here is a wonderful platter by Gien of France depicting a Carp and titled  Les Carpe Giennoise with the recipe in French.  It has a richly colored honey amber glaze.  It would looks fantastic in any French or chef’s kitchen.  I have a matching platter (shown in 2nd photo and sold separately) Les Truites Au Bleu if you want a pair.

Gien was founded in 1821 by Thomas Hall, and Englishman who wanted to introduce fine English earthenware manufacturing techniques in France.

Production first began with functional tableware, then went on to make more formal dinnerware, decorative pieces and tableware emblazoned with notable families' coats of arms.
