Antique French omelet turning plate - large 11¾"

SKU: 18442

Dating from the end of the nineteenth century, a delightful antique glazed terracotta plate used to "turn" an omelet onto a plate. This classic French piece was likely made in Saint-Quentin-la-Poterie, a village in Provence renowned for pottery. A "tourne omelets" plate, or omelets turning plate, is a kitchen utensil designed to help flip omelets easily and efficiently, ensuring they are cooked evenly without breaking, note the foot underneath for holding onto. There is a minor chip on the rim and the glaze has a pretty speckled effect. This shallow footed bowl features a warm ocher glaze with a squiggle and line decorations. A charming piece to use for preparing omelets or as a fruit or small salad bowl.
