Fabulous set of six majolica shell and seaweed plates made in Japan for Horchow sometime between 1950 and 1970. The design is a modern reproduction of the 19th Century Etruscan Majolica by Griffen, Smith & Hill.
They feature concentric ridges arranged in the shape of stylized oyster shells finished in shades of blue, pink and brown. The shells are overlaid with six symmetrical strands of green seaweed. These were hand-decorated so coloring will vary; the green of the seaweed is more intense on some of the plates.
