This very large Victorian oceanic platter measures 17 1/2 "long x 14 1/8 " wide and is transfer printed in black against a white background.
The pattern features a marine border of shells and seaweed hooked together by strands of pearls. Nestled in the well of the plate are a variety of seashells with sprigs of seaweed as the backdrop. Stunning pattern.
