Two Rare Oval Palissy Antique French Platters circa 1890

Two rare large Palissy antique French glazed ceramic oval platters circa 1890. The shaped borders of these oval platters enclose a profusion of natural species in a unique and engaging fashion. First invented by Bernard Palissy, a Frenchman, in the sixteen hundreds, the brilliant glazes heighten the appearance of the serpents, salamanders, frogs, crayfish and seashells visible here. Please notice the symmetrical appearance and presentation of the specimens and the gorgeous choice of the intense glazes used to color each platter. Not a pair because of the different designs each platter is fully glazed on both sides and intended to display together. Please enlarge all the photographs to see the details in closeup. Larger platter dimensions listed, smaller platter measures 15" wide x 11" deep x 2 1/2" high.
