These old dishes are a patterned depression glass with a scroll and floral swag design that I have been unable to identify with certainty. There are some references to it being made by either Macbeth Evans Glass Co. or the Hazel Atlas Glass Company, most likely in the mid 1930’s. The dishes have a short stem on the bottom with no foot so they have to be used in a metal holder. These came to me in the holders shown which may or may not be the original holders. They set loosely in the bases either side but do not seat tightly either way. The bases are typical of holders that were often found in old soda fountains with paper inserts and they are actually marked; Paper Container Mfg. Co. Chicago.
Sold and priced as a pair.
The glass bowls measure about 3 7/8” in diameter at the top and are in very good condition with minimal wear. The bases measure about 3 ½” high, 3 ½” in diameter on one side and 2 7/8” in diameter on the other side. They are probably made of stainless steel and are in fairly good, used condition with light scratch wear.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
