This antique 5 well oyster plate has a pleasing crescent shape. There is a raised base (see photo of reverse) which allows the scalloped edges of the oyster plate to be elevated above the surface. The design offers the opportunity to vary the height of the edge above the surface. The front and the tips of the crescent are molded to turn down slightly--all in all, a complex shape. The color palette of the oyster plate features strong pink , black, champagne and white on a pale sky blue background. The pink and the black are shaded to blush and slate. The oyster plate is 8.5 inches at the widest point and 6 inches at the narrowest point. It has the initial "AS" on the back. The condition is excellent.
