French Advertising Brown Transferware Sole Fish Platter La Sole Hollandaise


Brand Gien

Here is a wonderful platter by Gien of France depicting a Sole fish and titled  La Sole Hollandaise 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  matching platters with different fish  (some shown in 2nd & 3rd photo and sold separately)

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.
