Specialty Collections - Oyster Plates

Haviland Oyster Plates
This item sold!

Oyster plates became very popular in the Victorian era, as oysters were a popular gourmet food during that period. Fashionable homes and restaurants of the 19th century prominently featured intricately designed oyster plates on their tables. Many manufacturers from various countries produced oyster plates, such as Haviland of France, Minton of England, Union Porcelain Works of the United States, and Meissen of Germany. Oyster plate production has declined significantly since that time, although there is a renewed interest for them among collectors. This is why oyster plates are usually hard to find and command a high price regardless of their condition. Oyster plates are a most unique and wonderful example of our dining history.

These twelve beautiful oyster plates were made by Theodore Haviland in the Limoges area of France. Theodore Haviland China was founded by the Haviland Brothers of New York City in 1842. These are individual oyster plates decorated with a pink rose design, and the scalloped edge is accented with a gold trim.
