About UsCAMDEN CORNER for April, 2015:
***for mother's Day--a spectacular Victorian figural napkin ring; a sterling napkin ring--perhaps with flowers or a gorgeous antique fan.
***Just in time for "Premier Mai" in France, we have several pieces of Whiting Lily of the Valley sterling flatware.
***Please take a look at our "blues" selection for spring.
***If you are looking for a gift, consider mother of pearl serving pieces or sterling napkin rings. ***Oyster plates go especially well with French decorative themes. For a refined, "lovely" look try a grouping of our Haviland and Limoges oyster plates. With contemporary décor, look at the strong colors of majolica or the bold Quimper plates.

Over a period of more than 40 years I have collected oyster plates. I want to share with you the expertise I have honed over the years. First and foremost, all of our oyster plates are antique. We take pride in offering oyster plates in fine condition. If you are starting a collection, adding rare oyster plates to an existing collection, or using oyster plates for unique decorations, we provide a wide selection. If you wish to color coordinate, enter "blue", "green", or the color you are searching for. We can help you "mix and match" oyster plates. Please contact us if you want help in setting up an array of oyster plates for hanging or shelf display. We feature oyster plates by many of the finest makers:
English: MINTONS, WEDGWOOD, FIELDING
American: UNION PORCELAIN WORKS (UPW), BOTELER, NEW ENGLAND POTTERY CO.
Italian: SALVIATI & CO.
French; LIMOGES, HAVILAND LIMOGES, THEODORE HAVILAND, TRESSERMAN & VOGT
HISTORICAL BLUE TRANSFERWARE
A note on our historical blue transferware: all of these blue and white Staffordshire pieces date from the 1820's and 1830's. The term "historical blue" was coined to distinguish the rich, deep blue of these pieces from other blues in blue and white china. "Historical blue" china is known for a very high percentage of blue in the design--very little white--but at the same time amazing detail. We have pieces by the great potters of the time: Clews, Enoch Wood, Ralph Hall, and Adams.
