Offered here is a pretty Pink Depression Glass two-handle serving plate with a wheel cut floral design. The color of this six-sided plate is the rich, clear pink of the better quality and more elegant glass of the Depression Era. Open handles have been applied to the underside of the plate on opposite sides, and the plate rests on a 4-1/8 inch circular raised foot. The wheel-cut design has been engraved on the underside of three of the six panels and consists of a six-petaled cornflower with a closed center. Vines, each with three leaves, reach out from opposite sides of each flower. Each vine features four pairs of exquisite curling tendrils.
This lovely glass plate measures 7-1/2 inches in diameter, and 8-inches across the handles. The raised foot lifts the rim 7/8-inch above the table.
Made circa the 1930s to 1940s, there is no mark.
There are surface scratches and a pair of 3/8-inch long parallel deep scratches on the underside. There are a couple of manufacturing flaws in the form of tiny indentations along the underside of the rim. There is also a line through one of the handles that can be seen but not felt and is not a crack. There are no chips on this lovely piece.
