This is a stunning set of six oyster plates by the Faience de St. Amand factory.
Each plate has been 'spray' glazed individually, so each one varies slightly from the others in color and intensity and is completely unique and original. Some are deeper green then others. The deep green areas contrast beautifully with the warm, 'speckled' creamy white colored base glaze. They are fascinating to look at and wonderfully tactile, with 'ridges' reminiscent of oyster shells. There cannot be a more stylish way to serve your seafood course at dinner parties.
Each plate has six oyster shell shaped 'wells', around a raised central well, where you stylishly serve your lemon ready for squeezing onto the oysters. They could also be used for scallops.
The six plates are chunky, weighing 700gms / 1.5 lbs! each and measure 24.5cms/ 9½" diameter.
They are dishwasher safe (Garanti Spécial Lave Vaisselle) and have the 'Faience de St. Amand, France' mark on the undersides.
They are all in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. One of the plates has a microscopic 'nick' at the edge of the central well, which is not noticeable at normal viewing distance. They have the beginnings of 'fine hairline crackle' to the glazes which is to be expected with the age of these plates and does not in any way detract from their beauty or functionality. They have many years of service yet to offer.
This set really is a rare 'find' indeed and simply beautiful..............
