This is the famous "Presidential" Oyster Plate! There is a story behind these plates when President Hayes was in office his wife ordered a Presidential set of Oyster Plates for the White House. At the time they were $3,120.00 and Congress though that was excessive so they had a replica of that plate commissioned and this is one of them! It's in the Turkey design and on the backyou will see the Presidential Seal and Theodore Davis's signature that designed it. It was made by Haviland & Company........
