Offered for your consideration is the elusive "Alice" dinner plate in Jadeite by Anchor Hocking. This pretty pattern features drapes of a raised and detailed floral garland around the 1-1/2 inch wide rim. The rim of the plate turns up and is bordered by a 1/2-inch band of ribs around the base of the rim, and tiny, raised, diagonal ribs that alternate direction around the outside edge of the widely-scalloped rim. The back of the plate features concentric circles around the bottom and ribs extending up the back of the rim. Only three different pieces were made in the Alice pattern. The cups and saucers were offered as premiums with products, and the now-scarce dinner plates were sold separately.
This plate measures 9-1/8 inches in diameter and about 1-inch deep.
Alice was made by Anchor Hocking from 1945 to 1949. There is no mark.
As is common in vintage glassware, there are expected minor surface scratches. There is one 3/4-inch scratch on the surface of the plate that is deep enough to feel, and a 1/2-inch scratch on the backside of the plate. Oddly, there is a factory flaw that looks as though someone lightly touched the glass when it was hot and left a couple of tiny fingerprints. There are no chips or cracks in this scarce plate.
