The Hand Painted Apples are unusual on these four Petalware Depression Glass luncheon plates by MacBeth Evans. The Petalware pattern has a wide rim with narrow panels that form a pretty scalloped edge and can be felt on the underside. These plates are in the opaque, off-white shade known as Ivrene. Petalware is often found plain or with fired-on decorations, but each of these plates has a pair of hand painted, ripe, red apples clinging to the brown branch of the tree and accented with leaves in two shades of green.
Made by Macbeth-Evans from 1930 through the 1940s, there is no mark.
Each plate measures 8-inches in diameter.
Parts of the designs show some wear, and one of the four has a tiny, dark nick on the edge.
Offered as a set, you will receive all four plates. Thank you for visiting MaggieBelle's Memories! Please see my Favorite Links to follow me on Pinterest!
