About Us
Was it DESTINY???
%
As a young child, it was a rare occasion that children were allowed to touch anything inside my aunt’s home.
The wife of a highly respected physician with no children, but having many wonderful artifacts, their home seemed more like a museum to me.
Curious as most children are, I remember some of their most intriguing pieces… one being a...

SINGLE OYSTER PLATE!

As it would happen, many years later, I inherited that very plate!
It was not until I became an avid antique collector living at the Chesapeake Bay, that I became infatuated with these wonderful Victorian works of art and their history!

No need to buy expensive gas or fight the elements!

WHEN IT COMES TO VINTAGE OYSTER PLATES...
WE SET THE STANDARD!

It is my pleasure to bring you detailed descriptions of my oyster plates.
Considerable time is spent researching the history & back marks as well as taking sharp pictures for complete accuracy.
I enjoy it my work!

WORTH NOTING...

THERE ARE LITERALLY HUNDREDS OF REPRODUCTION OYSTER PLATES ON TODAY'S MARKET.

Many of these NEW plates are listed as 'LIMOGES' & are actually NEW & MADE IN CHINA (having a fake Limoges mark)

NIPPON, too, is FAKE as NIPPON did NOT produce oyster plates.

NEW RS PRUSSIA & HAVILAND are also being passed off as GENUINE but in fact are 'KNOCK-OFFS'.

ARM YOURSELF WITH KNOWLEDGE!
KNOW & TRUST YOUR DEALER!

My oyster plates are absolutely guaranteed to be authentic & not reproductions!

If you have questions regarding antique oyster plates, please do not hesitate to call or email me!

Confused? Just ask!

For Your Information.....
From time to time, I am able to offer pieces that are unique and/or of a less
than pristine condition. All are antique or vintage.
As is typical of many older items, it is normal to expect some flaws and wear associated with early production, age, and use.
I do my best to disclose any issues with all these items both through the item description and by providing images of known imperfections.

For very old pieces, which of course are quite rare, collectors pay premium prices for porcelain that is physically damaged.
After all, there are many old pieces that have suffered damage that are presently in museums.
