The glass made by Lancaster during the Depression Era was often of finer quality than most Depression Glass, and this beautiful topaz yellow three-footed tidbit tray in the Phoenix pattern is an excellent example. Based on the mythological Phoenix, a detailed etch featuring a pair of these fabulous birds is repeated in each of the three panels formed by the embossed teardrop shape around each of the curved feet. The birds face each other across a two-handled urn with what appears to be flames coming out of the top. This pattern is also called Fancy Weathervane, perhaps for the tall, elaborate pedestal and long, curling arms in the etch that support the rooster-like birds.

This lovely dish measures 7-1/2 inches in diameter and 1-3/4 inches high.

The gently scalloped plate rim has six small equidistant points alternating with the curves. The topaz color is a clear lemon yellow.

Made by Lancaster in the early 1930s, there is no mark.

There are small gaps in the etchings, which were likely done in the manufacture, and a few tiny bubbles in the glass. As in most vintage pieces, there are normal, small surface scratches. There is no other damage.
