$34.06

Shipping to United States: $39.74

Vintage French oval platters, or shallow dishes from the Longchamp factory, handpainted in Tulipe pattern.
There are two of these platters, of slightly different date although I think they are both from the first half of the Twentieth Century since both feature the oblong Longchamp factory mark with two horses in a square cartouche.
My best guess would be the Art Deco period of the 1920's and 30's, although this pattern continued in production throughout the Twentieth Century.
The decoration is of a central pinky-red tulip in a small bouquet with blue and yellow flowers, probably representing crocus and narcissus, and a blue flower sprig on one side of the edge, echoed by a red bloom on the opposite end of the oval.
There is a green border around the rim of the oval.
One dish has more crackling to the glaze and this item is the cheaper of the two, I am selling them separately although you can order both if you wish.
Photos 1 to 5 are of the dish in slightly better condition. The back stamp has some yellow in the cartouche.
Photos 6 to 10 are of the dish with more crackled glaze, the back stamp is in faded black and there is a small green cross underneath it.

Size of each platter approx 27cm long and 16.5cm wide.

Our items are carefully selected antique and vintage pieces from France and they show the character and charm of years of use. We do not sell new or reproduction items so you can expect to find signs of the age and life that the piece has led. We believe this history adds to the story of an item. Obvious damage and faults will always be mentioned in our descriptions but minor age-related condition issues are not considered a detriment.


DELIVERY
We are able to post out parcels from Metropolitan France and shipping fees are shown. Please allow plenty of transit time, as European post is notoriously slow!
Ceramic items and fragile pieces are well packaged to prevent transit damage and this means your parcel will weigh quite a bit. It is expensive to ship items from France but we do all we can to keep costs to a minimum, and will always refund any overcharges if you buy more than one item.
*The customer is responsible for any import duties incurred for an item. We will require a PHONE NUMBER to add to the customs forms, to help prevent any delays or transit problems. If you refuse delivery of an item due to customs costs, please be aware that your parcel's postage costs will be forfeit, although we are happy to refund the item purchase price upon return.
**Please also note that most deliveries within France and some other European Union countries are usually made to a Pont Relais collection point, there are usually a number of these located in shops and supermarkets in each town, and you will be given the opportunity to specify which one you prefer if this service is available for your location. Otherwise I will select the shop with the longest opening hours within your area. Deliveries to most other European destinations are generally to your doorstep unless it is much cheaper to use Pont Relais.
***Currently deliveries to the UK may be impacted by Brexit paperwork and procedural delays, this situation is becoming easier as time goes by. The sales tax is being included in any sales so there should be nothing extra due to pay when your parcel arrives, subject to customs clearance.
