Villeroy & Boch Side Plates

R180.00

For a moment there I was quite confused by the maker’s stamp on the back of these delightful bee-sting ‘Biarritz‘ Villeroy & Boch side plates – I read the stamp as ‘European Union’, but the plates just didn’t look modern enough to me to warrant an EU stamp? I took I second glance and realised that it actually read ‘Economic Union’, a stamp used between 1947 and 1957, before the Saar region voted to rejoin Germany in 1957. That make these plates nearly sixty years old! There are a few scratches along the black glaze, but for the most these plates are in good condition – definitely in better nick than I’ll be by the time I reach sixty!

A wonderfully cheerful, yet still quite stylish set of side plates – perfect for a small salad, or a slice of bee-sting cake (my favourite!).

Dimensions: Each plate measures 19cm in diameter
