The pattern for this Westmoreland Lace Edge Hand Painted black glass salad plate was named Square Peg. The Square Peg pattern by Westmoreland is a lesser-known design with an unusual Lace Edge. The plate has a wide, lace edge rim with rectangular openings. An outer edge with circular loops is positioned between each rectangle to complete the Square Peg pattern. This plate has been hand decorated with an Asian-style floral design of tall, slender leaves in greens and golds, with a large blue iris flower near the top of the arrangement. There are more blossoms and a bird in oranges and blues toward the middle of the bouquet, and it is anchored in a mound of metallic gold at the bottom. Metallic gold clouds can be seen in the background.
The plate measures 7-3/4 inches across each side, with the central solid square measuring 4-3/4 inches across.
Made by Westmoreland circa 1949, there is no mark.
There is some wear to the design, but it is still easily discernible. There is a shallow edge chip on the foot that does not impact stability. There is also a small, shallow edge chip on one of the outer loops on the right side of the plate. There is no other damage.
