Exceptional 19th Century English Majolica Oyster Plate in the most desirable colors of aqua and lavender. The six-well glazed plate was made by S. Fielding & Co. Ltd., Stoke-on-Trent, England, circa 1878. Turquoise oyster wells surround a center condiment well, all on a molded bed of lavender purple coral or seaweed. The brown nautical rope border encircles the center well and the outer rim, giving this an extra pop of color.On the back, a watery oyster grey glaze, the six raised feet are in the shape of shells.
