Table of Contents

Starting in the Victorian years of the 19th century, hearty oyster consumption made special, beautifully crafted "oyster plates" a necessity in fashionable homes and restaurants.

This book is perfect for collectors, complete with a rarity guide and color photographs of almost 500 pieces of original dishware and unusual serving utensils. The text is filled with the history of oysters plate manufacturers from Limoges and Meissen to Wedgewood.

Our note: although the cover photo indicates "with Price Guide" there are no dollar values shown in the text. Rather, the author uses star system to indicate relative value to the current market; 1 star = common, 2 stars = rare, 3 stars = very rare, 4 stars = very rare, 5 stars = only a few know or one of a kind. Collectors are able to use this star based system to determine the value of the plate relative to current market pricing, as pricing does fluctuate.
