Antique Lusterware Oyster Plate

Antique Lusterware Oyster Plate

$95.00

The oyster plate was first used in the Victorian Era when oysters on or off the half shell became both a status symbol and a delicacy.  This obsession with oysters lead to one of the most beautiful Victorian dinnerware pieces - the Oyster plate. The plates were quite lavish and beautifully decorated.  It was not uncommon for hostesses to outdo themselves with plates filled with the half shell oysters - one more gorgeous than the next!  

Oyster plate production slowed down after WWI when the Victorian lifestyle and serving oysters fell out of favor, but these gorgeous souvenirs of that era remain today to tempt and inspire us.  

Dreamy, delicate, and whimsical, this Antique Lusterware Oyster Plate is truly a one-of-a-kind treasure. This well-loved plate dates from the late 19th century and has all the decorative opulence of that era.

It features a lustrous glaze in a delicately faded pale pink shade and is embellished with pretty embossed flowers as well as gleaming gold trim. The plate has a total of 5 larger wells designed to hold oysters on the half shell, two smaller wells for oysters off the shell and a center well for a sauce or lemon wedges. With faded, pale elegance, this plate is sure to be a beautiful and unique addition to your oyster plate collection! 


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In fair antique condition with wear to the gold trim and considerable fading to the pink glaze as shown in the alternate images. Measures 9"D.
