An antique glass bread plate that features the Royal Lady or Crying Baby pattern. We see a small child crying because a curious frog has decided to jump onto her plate and spill her food. This is absolutely charming!
Manufactured by Belmont Glass Company and dates to c. 1881. The actual Royal Lady is the cameos which you see on the side borders.
Measuring 13 inches from handle to handle and 8.75 inches wide we noticed on each one of the profiles, at the base of the neck, the area is rough. We believe this is a manufacturing flaw as it appears on both sides.
Curio - an object displayed for its attractiveness or interest
