This is a stunning cobalt oyster plate by Charles Field Haviland and Gerard, Dufraisseix, Morel. There is an all over design in gilt against the rich cobalt. The designs in gilt are seashells, flowers, and leafy sprigs. There is brushed gilt on the scalloped border. The center sauce well is blue with additional gilt decorations. The shape of the center well causes it to appear to spiral into the outer wells. On the reverse is the maker's mark "CFH/GDM France" in green. The marks date the plate to between 1881 and 1890. The diameter is 9 1/8 inches at the widest point. The oyster plate is in pristine condition. It was probably a cabinet piece.
We have two of these oyster plates available, sold separately, in case you want a pair to "anchor" a wall, mantel, shelf or table display. Other oyster plates in our shop where pairs are available have titles beginning "DUO available".
