This RARE oyster plate was made and factory decorated by Haviland & Co of Limoges France.
Charming arrangement of four realistic white oyster shaped wells outlined in gold and...
deep seated inside a gilded outlined square with rounded corners.
The wide Bright Yellow & Gold border is daubed & 100% intact!
(Yellow is hard-color-to- find in old oyster plates)
Excellent Condition with NO issues ~ 8" across ~ Gilded rim
FYI...Today's market is being flooded with NEW (made in CHINA) reproduction and fake oyster plates! Buyer Beware! As yet, I have NOT seen this particular plate being reproduced by the unscrupulous Chinese! ALL my oyster plates are authentic as I do not deal in reproductions!
Thanks for visiting my shop!
Proud to be Virginia's Most Trusted Name in ANTIQUE OYSTER PLATES!
It is my pleasure to bring you detailed descriptions of my oyster plates.
Considerable time is spent researching the history & back marks as well as taking sharp pictures for complete accuracy.
I enjoy it my work
