    Description

    Rutherford B. Hayes: White House China Oyster Plate. Collectors seem to either love or hate this bold design with a distinctly Art Nouveau flavor. Havilland markings and August 10, 1880 patent date on underside indicate that this particular example, while identical to those used at the White House, was issued for sale to the public. Still quite scarce and desirable, and virtually identical to the presidentially used examples. Near mint condition. Diameter 8.625".
