Offered for sale is a very rare set of 4 oyster plates made by the historic United Porcelain Works, located in Greenpoint, New York in 188l.  The  Union Porcelain Works  was both the first and the foremost American manufacturer of  porcelain  wares from c. 1862 to c. 1922.  

This antique oyster plate set is a stunning addition to any collection.  Each plate features a beautiful hand-painted sea life pattern with vibrant pink accents. The clam shell shape and 4 well design make it perfect for serving oysters at any occasion.

 The backstamp is printed with the manufacturer's name and patent date. This set includes 4 plates, each measuring 8.5 inches in length, 6.5 inches in width, and 1.25 inches in height, with a weight of 11 oz. Don't miss out on the opportunity to own a piece of Victorian art pottery history!  Google searches will reveal a First Dibs dealer asking $1200 for a single plate.

These were bought at Sotheby;s thirty years ago by a gentleman that wrote books about fine dining.  They were never used-see original tags.  Great find.   Check out our other fine china listings- Flora Danica, Red Bird, and every desirable designer.
