This Set of Four Retro Hazel Atlas Ripple Aqua Blue over Milk Glass Luncheon Plates is straight out of the 1950s! Ripple, the official pattern name, is also known as Crinoline, Pie Crust, Lasagna, and even Petticoat, because of its ruffled edge. Unlike the matching bowls, the aqua blue finish has been applied only to the ruffled edge, creating a pleasing contrast with the white milk glass. Aqua and pink were the signature colors of the fifties, and the two colors make a charming blend on the table!
Originally listed as a luncheon plate, each plate measures 8-7/8 inches in diameter, making it versatile enough as a small dinner plate. Since Ripple was issued as a luncheon set, there are only two other sized plates known, the smaller salad plate, and the larger serving plate for sandwiches.
Made by Hazel-Atlas in the early 1950s, the distinctive Ripple plates are not marked.
Each has a bit of faint brownish stain or discoloration that does not seem to wash off. There is also a slight iridescent sheen when held in the right light. As is often found in inexpensive glass of this era, there are pinpoint-sized bumps and spots like kiln marks on the face of the plates, and perhaps a few minor surface scratches. There are no chips or cracks.
