2 pc Set Meat Platter Drainer Blue Flower Villeroy & Boch Dresden Saxony

 

~Direct from England~

~A lovely antique platter AND matching drainer…have you EVER seen these drainers?  We discovered these drainers many years ago, and are always “on the hunt” for them when in Europe.   AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME (in over ten years) THAT WE HAVE FOUND THE DRAINER AND THE PLATTER TOGETHER!~

 

Here’s a bit of history about strainers/drainers:

Somewhere in the early 1800’s, dinner sets would include a “drainer” or what was also called a “mezzanine”.  Typically flat, with a hole in the center and smaller holes all around it.  The drainer would fit inside a large serving platter or dish, and was used when serving meat/fish, to drain the juices below.

 

~Large shaped and fluted platter with beautiful hand painted pattern.  Matching drainer has the same pattern, delicate blue flower motif.

(I don’t know the name of the pattern, drop me a note if you do!)

 

~Some numbers stamped on the back of the platter.  I do not have any definitive information on the maker,  I DO NOT GUARANTEE IT TO BE VILLERY & BOCH OR DRESDEN, and generally estimate it to be circa 1920~

 

Measurements:

PLATTER, 2”thickness x 18.25” x 12.5”;

DRAINER, 13.75” x 9.25”.
