a gorgeous 8.5" antique porcelain oyster plate, circa 1880-1890.

in wonderful antique condition.

the beloved oyster plate was born in the Victorian era, when oysters rose in popularity as a delicacy. in true gilded age fashion, dinner hosts used these delicate, hand-painted, porcelain plates to display their status and wealth. plate production slowed after WWI when Victorian frivolity and lavishness were replaced by the sensibility of the post-war Modern era.

oyster plates have now become highly collectible items, with colored, patterned, and damage-free plates being the most sought-after. when displayed together in a china cabinet or on a wall, they make an absolutely stunning interior statement (with a rich history!)
