19th-century "Tourne omelette" plate w/ squiggles - St. Quentin

This classic French piece was made in Saint-Quentin-la-Poterie, a village in Provence renowned for pottery. A "tourne omelette" plate, or omelette turning plate, is a kitchen utensil designed to help flip omelettes easily and efficiently, ensuring they are cooked evenly without breaking.

This shallow footed bowl features an warm mustard-color glaze with ocher squiggle and line decorations. A charming piece to display fruit and add a touch of the south of France to your home. Note the chip to glaze in the center of the bowl as seen in photos.
