Description: A very useful platter for turkey or steak diners as the juices run down the tree shaped indentations into the well. These platters are sloped from the high end to the well end. All well & trees have two feet and the well bump upon which they rest. Most of the bottom is glazed except for the bump and bottom edge strips. This large platter is 18 1/2″ long. There may be larger and smaller ones.
Oval shaped well & tree platters are very rare. The octagonal ones are scarce but more are available. Octagonals are pictured and discussed separately.
