There is something refreshing about this antique oyster plate. The clean octagonal lines, the crisp pink & chocolate chintz background, the sunset pink in the 5 oyster wells, combine to give a very pleasing effect. A tracery of pink flowers and delicate stems forms the chintz pattern. The oyster plate is in excellent condition-no chips, hairlines or repairs. The octagonal shape has 4 long sides and 4 shorter sides. Measured from long side to long side in both directions, the dimension is 8 inches. On the back there is a four digit number over a number and a character. This plate has a beautiful luster indicating it was used very little, if at all. This is a rare oyster plate.
