Here is a lovely antique green and gold French oyster plate. The maker was the respected French company, Tressemanes and Vogt, and their mark, "T & V", is clearly stamped on the back, along with the name of the fine importer, Jones McDuffin & Stratteon ("J., McD. & S."). of Boston. The five wells are outlined in gold. The edge design of intricate netting and delicate gilt trees forms the borders of the 5 wells.The center sauce well is decorated with a gold clover image. The diameter is 8 inches and the plate is in beautiful condition with no chips, hairlines, or repairs. A similar plate in green and gilt is pictured on page 77 of the reference book, "Collecting Oyster Plates", by Jeffrey Snyder.
