This handosme antique oyster plate has 5 wells, a center sauce well, and 2 decorative wells in the shape of shells. The design is quite appealing. Note in particular how there are color changes in the large wells from the outside to the inside. The border is also quite unusual. The plate by made by the Carl Tielsch Company of Silesia (Germany). The company's blue mark is on the back (see next to last picture). There is also an impressed mark. The same plate, with a different color way, is pictured on page 97 of the book, Oyster Plates by Karsnitz. It is given a rating of RARE. The diameter of this handsome German oyster plate is 9 inches, and it is in superb condition.
