Rare Dresden oyster plate with a Franziska Hirsch back stamp that was only used for two years, 1894-1896. The six-well plate is 9-1/4 inches across and has a center sauce well. All the wells are decorated with Hirsch's well-know Dresden flowers.
The plate has a significant repair which isn't as noticeable as it would be if the plate didn't have such an elaborate pattern. (See pictures.)
