Antique Oyster Plate ~ Over Ice on Half-Shell
Circa late 1800,s /early 1900's
Antique oyster plate having six wells...
Made for serving oysters on the half shell over ice
The plate was filled with crushed ice and the oyster shell would be placed on the ice
(as depicted on page 17 of Karsnitz Oyster Plate Book) See photos
Most of Ahrenfeldt's plates are decorated rather lavishly
Intricate gilded border with aqua edge and gilded scalloped rim gives this oyster PIZAZZ!
Petite pastel florals with green foliage surround the wells all on a snow white ground
Note the delicate ornate 'handle' at the top of the plate
Mint condition ~ 7.75" across including 'handle'
