Offered for your consideration is this pretty Amber Banded S Pattern or "Stippled Rose Band" Depression Glass Creamer and Matching Plate made by MacBeth-Evans. The main feature of this darling little creamer and matching plate is the amber-tinted Stippled Rose Band that circles the rim. An embossed, 1/2-inch stippled band is intersected in eight places on the plate, four on the creamer, with a single, open rose with heart-shaped petals. Each blossom is flanked by a leafy vine that ends in an upward curl. This band is tinted amber with a faint iridescence. Each rose in the band is framed top and bottom by an embossed three-leaf and curled vine motif. The center bottom of the creamer is decorated with a 16-petaled flower, and the bottom of the plate is decorated with a stippled rose design that is similar, but not identical, to the band. As you run your fingers around the rims you can feel a subtle ripple, with a slight outward flare to the creamer.
This charming creamer measures 2-5/8 inches tall and 3-1/2 inches in diameter. It is 4-1/2 inches across the handle and spout. The plate is 8-inches in diameter.
S Pattern was made by Macbeth-Evans from 1930 to 1933. There is no mark.
As is common in vintage glassware, there are expected surface scratches. There are a few flecks of paint on the underside of the plate as though picked up from a painted cupboard, and there is a bit of mold-seam roughness on the foot of the creamer. The specks of dirt in the creamer seen in the photos have been removed. The plate has a couple of places where the amber color has adhered outside of the band.
