Be leery of new fakes when you are shopping. In 1890, the U.S. Congress passed the McKinley Tariff Act. This legislation required that imported items be labeled in English with their country of origin. International legislation was signed in 1891. In 1914, the U.S. added a requirement to add the words "Made in" to the country of origin marking.
We have other oyster plates for sale.
