Offered here is a beautiful and unusual Cambridge Etch 725 elegant glass pink cheese and cracker tray with a center ring for a compote. Etch 725 is a gorgeous, wide, flowing, acid-etched band of flowers, swirls, and scrolls on a stippled background. Narrow bands of flourishes grace the outer and inner rims, which were once gold-trimmed. The ground and polished center has a sunburst-rayed design and a center ring to hold a compote for cheese. More often seen in green, it is quite unusual to find this pattern in pink.
This elegant platter measures 12-1/2 inches long by 8-1/2 inches wide. The center ring is 3-inches in diameter.
This etch was made by Cambridge during the late 1920s and discontinued in the early 1930s. It is not marked.
There is a flaw in the glass at one end before the rim that appears to be a trio of popped bubbles from the manufacturing process. There are surface scratches consistent with normal use, and the gold trim is well-worn, and nearly gone on the outer rim. There are no other condition issues. (The orange spot in the last photo has been removed.)
This piece would pair well with any glass compote from this era. Try it with green, crystal, or blue!
