Typically know to oyster plate collectors as the 'Mercedes Plate' ...
Rarely seen without much history other than the marks on the back
which really don't tell us much.
Hand written numbers that are unknown to me.
Triangularly shaped mold having three clam shaped wells separated by
three odd shaped wells with one having...
A big CRAB in relief with gilded highlights
Center sauce well looks like the Mercedes emblem, therefore the reference
Decorated with gold gilding on the white ground
Note the wear on the gilding
Excellent condition with no issues other than the rubbed gilding
Truly an 'oldie' and rare!
Measures 8" across
