This turkey oyster plate has a mix of colors not usually found in these famous plates, which were originally designed for the Hayes White House. The netting background is quite charming and the gold outlining the wells is still in fine condition. On this oyster plate the "turkey" is a mottled brown and white, with its head to the left of the classic five wells of a turkey plate. The palest of sky blues for the background, accented by coral in the seaweed "ribbons", makes a lovely combination of colors. The diameter is 9 inches and the condition is excellent. The marks are shown in the last two pictures. The green mark says Made in Germany and the red mark appears to say the same thing. There is also a hand written mark in letters which may be a style reference number.
