As most collectors know...
Wilhelm & Graef was a New York high-end retailer of Fine Glass & China
And this oyster plate is no exception!
Squarish in shape and having five oyster wells and center sauce, tinted in pink & showing their muscle scars, are outlined in bright gilding...set in cobalt ground
Space between wells and edge of plate is white with intricate gilded design next to wells
Then the outer border has a cobalt scrolled design with gilded highlights
Further, the outside edge is gilded
Lots going on here....making this one fantastic plate!
Other than slight rubbing on gold design next to wells and very very slight rim wear (see photos) the condition is excellent
The only mark is a worn 'Wilhelm & Graef' (guaranteed)
Most likely made in Germany (due to size shape and star foot)
Thank you for your interest!
