This charming late nineteenth century oyster plate has six wells with a hand painted scene in each. Scenes of fish alternate with scenes of boats. Each of the paintings is presented against a different natural background of water and sea plants. There is a striking pink center well which complements the blues, browns, dark green, and russet of the oyster wells. The diameter of the plate is 9 inches. The plate is in fine condition. There are no chips, hairlines, or repairs.
