French Advertising Brown Transferware Trout Fish Platter Les Truites Au Bleu


Brand Gien

Here is a wonderful platter by Gien of France depicting Trout fish and titled  Les Truites Au Bleu with the recipe in French.  Trout are turned blue by adding red wine vinegar to the water it is poached in, at least this is my understanding as to how this blue trout is prepared.  The platter has a richly colored honey amber glaze.  It would look fantastic in any French or chef’s kitchen.  I have a matching platter (shown in 2nd photo and sold individually)  L'Anguille En Matelote to it listed 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.
