A set of 6 Old Paris porcelain oyster plates monogrammed with the initial “A”. The white plates are trimmed in a luscious shade of sea foam green with gilt. The center well bears a striking monogram interlaced with gilt swirls. Most likely they were created for a family that could well afford the luxury of service plates with the family monogram. The plates are not marked and were most likely produced by one of the many companies operating in and around Paris that did not mark their wares during the 19th Century. They could have been blanks from Limoges that were decorated by some of those companies.
These are just in from Paris and ready to impress your guests. They were used and enjoyed by the previous owners and each plate has a bit of wear to the green and gilt trim. But then it is all about that center monogram which is in perfect condition on all the plates.
