Beautiful Antique Longchamp Terre De Fer Majolica Oyster Plate

!

For your consideration is a lovely antique Oyster Plate by Longchamp Terre De Fer France. As one can clearly see it is nicely hand painted in beautiful colors. From the impressions on the bottom I believe this plate dates to sometime during the late 19th century or early 20th century. The letters "LONGC" are missing only leaving only the "HAMP" in Longchamp. There is wear throughout consistent with age and use along with a small separation in the glaze on the edge of one of the shell wells. The center well has a small chip on the outer edge which I have tried to photograph. There is crazing throughout which is typical of these heavily glazed pieces. We have tried to photograph these details. Please review the photographs carefully as they are also part of the description.There are no repairs or that I can detect. These detailed descriptions certainly do not detract from the general aesthetics of the piece and are only mentioned for accuracy. One may say it has weathered the many years extremely well and is in good condition. This treasure measures approximately 9 7/8 inches in diameter x 1 inch highest points. A wonderful dish for your collection!
