Dating to the 1960s/70s, France, the original purpose of this large cork couasse was a display platter for bouillabaisse. When dining in a French restaurant, raw fish is presented on a couasse to guests before it is transformed into a bouillabaisse. With its long, shallow, and organic curved nature, this cork platter would make an intriguing decorative object or table centerpiece in both modern and traditional interiors. And don't worry, this does not smell of raw fish!
