Description:  A very useful platter for turkey or steak diners as the juices run down the tree shaped indentations into the well. On the largest platter pictured here there is a slope from the high end to the well end of 1/2″. All well & trees have two feet and the well bump upon which they rest. Most of the bottoms are glazed except for the bump and bottom edge strips. These four platters range in size from 12 1/8″ long to 18 7/8″ long. We are aware of a platter that is 19 1/2″ long and there are others to fill in between the smallest and largest shown here.

Octagonal Well & Trees are scarce but the oval shaped well & tree is very rare. One example is pictured and discussed separately.
