Offering a wonderful, vintage French farm pottery ceramic condiment or pate dish.
This large, thick yellow dish measures 9" X 15" and is almost 2" in height. It weighs almost 5 lbs.
The dish is divided into 6 sections and each section has a colorful hand painting of an animal: a frog - a rabbit - a goose - a dog - a duck and another bird of some sort.
The platter is stamped: France with PV in a circle logo. This PV logo stamp in France, is normally associated with Portieux and Vallerysthal so this may be one of their early dishes from the 1930's. The unglazed bottom edges of the platter show some wear, however there are no chips or cracks.
