Real Oyster Shell Oyster Plate with Catfish Sauce Bowl


Beautifully hand-crafted oyster plate featuring six real oyster shell “wells” set around a creamy white dinner plate with a slightly amber chevron patterned rim. A unique, hand formed catfish sauce bowl, made by Jamie Futera, accents the center of the plate. Quartz white beach glass fills the plate bottom like melting ice and a single real 7mm pearl adorns one of the oyster shells wells.

Each hand-selected 2 1/2 to 3 inch Atlantic oyster shell is finished with a high gloss resin to give it a fresh-shucked wet look, revealing the oyster shell’s rich colors. The sea glass “melting ice” has also been sealed with a high gloss resin.

The result – an oyster plate so fresh looking you can almost taste the cool salty oysters!

Plate diameter – 10 3/4 inches. Hand-wash only.
