This antique Westmoreland opal (milk) glass plate features Cupid and Psyche, although the company simply called the plate "Cupid". It's decorated in gold paint and was produced in the early 1900s. In the 1950s, Westmoreland reproduced this and several other plates in plain, undecorated milk glass. Westmoreland did not use the term milk glass until after WWII - they called their early white opaque glass opal.
The plate has no flakes, chips, or damage. When held to the light, the edges of the glass have the beautiful opalescent fire halo that typifies authentic old milk glass. The gold gilt decoration is in remarkably good condition for its age, showing just a little wear to the edges of the fan points along the rim and to Psyche's leg.
