This is a very rare set of OVIDE, Platonite White, dinnerware by Hazel Atlas Glass that were produced in the early 1930's. You are not likely to find this set offered any where else. Included are Three Serving Pieces and a Service for SIX (minus one berry bowl):
(6) 9" Dinner Plates
(6) 6" Sherbet Plates (Bread & Butter or Dessert Size)
(5) 4 3/4" Fruit / Berry Bowls
(1) Open Sugar
(1) 11" ROUND PLATTER
(1) Deep 9" Serving Bowl
As is often the case with Hazel Atlas, these dishes are unmarked. The cup handles and the deco style creamer, and sugar are perhaps the most distinctive pieces within the Ovide shape and are easily recognized. Also, this shape and several of the "Ovide Platonite with Designs" are pictured in Gene Florence's guide for Hazel Atlas (page 199) and also seen in Florence's ; "Depression Glass" (page 164 of the 16th edition). Other red designs found on the Hazel Atlas Platonite White include a Red Bow Pattern, a Red Bird Design, a Red Tulip Pattern and more.
These are thick, heavy glass and the weight of the 32 pieces determines the shipping cost.
