This hand coloured Minton oyster plate features six wells for the oysters, as well as a central well and a larger one which would have held sauces, lemon segments or crackers. The six flowers are delicately done in pink and rest on a stippled ground, whilst the outer wells are decorated with faint striped brushstokes of pink and green. Minton produced over twenty models of oyster plates from the late 1860's through to the very early 1900's, and the shape number of this one is 2245. The diameter is 235 mm (9.25 inches). It is in excellent condition and would date from around 1900.
