Georges Briard was an acclaimed designer for glassware. I didn’t know of him, until I purchased this platter at a local thrift store. Even more so, he had been a part of my life, growing up.
My nana had several pieces of Briard, such as this glassware for Libby. As you can see, his signature is very prominent. You won’t have trouble identifying his pieces.
The platters are what I find reminiscent, the most. The images of fruit and vegetables or the ornate gold zodiac/sand dollars are screaming late 60s early 70s. The service ware came in beautiful gold colored trivets, and had several pieces to a set.
I’m sure people may mistake the Zodiac Pyrex for a Briard, but it is not. No signature!
