This antique German Erdmann Schlegelmilch (sometimes referred to as "ES Prussia") crescent oyster plate has an innovative design and color palette. On a slate background shading to gray there are delicate pale green branches with pale green leaves accented with russet and a scattering of small white blooms. A pink ribbon diagonally across the plate provides a striking color contrast. The ribbon is decorated with a leaf spray with apple green leaves and flowers accented with gray. On the back of the plate we see the maker's mark, "ES" in script, the number "3454," and "depon.", an abbreviation for the German word for "registered". There are a few paint rubs, but no chips, hairlines, or repairs. The maximum distance across the plate is 9". In the other direction the distance is 6". An outstanding combination of color and design!
