Offered for your consideration is this Green Thistle Depression Glass Luncheon Plate by MacBeth-Evans. Thistle is a detailed, in-mold pattern of curved leaves and arching blossoms of the thistle plant. There is a large thistle with four blossoms in the center of the plate, and the design also winds around the rim. It is very difficult to capture the beauty of this pattern in a photograph.
This unmarked plate measures 8-inches in diameter.
This pattern was made by Macbeth-Evans for a very short time from 1929 to 1930. Only seven pieces in this pattern are known, and the beautiful green is becoming scarce.
As in most vintage pieces, there are normal, small surface scratches, and there is one tiny 3/8-inch hairline that comes down from the edge and shows darker in the photo than it actually is. There are no other condition issues in this hard to find plate.
