Most oyster plates are decorated with nautical items, but this one has two figures in the center-- most unusual. Garden flowers in the wells carry out the pastoral theme. Tulips and roses are gathered into bouquets with green leafy accents. Pinks, reds, blues form a beautiful color palette, and the gilt edge sets off the entire design. From the mark on the back we can tell that this oyster plate is German. The wells are divided by shells, another unusual and appealing feature. It is 9 inches in diameter and in perfect condition. This would be a nice addition to an oyster plate collection or displayed on an easel.
