Here is a Torte Plate, or large round platter, from Westmoreland Glass Company. This is in the Beaded Edge pattern with an Apple painted on opaque white glass. The back side of the platter bears an embossed zodiac design featuring the Sun in the center and the symbols for the twelve signs of the Zodiac, against a pebbly textured background. A very substantial and handsome piece! This line of beaded edge milk glass with decorations first appeared in the 1953 catalog. These and other pieces from this line are pictured in "Westmoreland Glass: The Popular Years, 1940-1985" by Kovar. This is rated as Difficult to find.
The plate measures 14 5/8" in diameter, the rim rises 1" from the table, and it is just under 7 1/2" across the base. There are no chips, cracks, flakes or other damage.
This is part of a complete service for eight, including serving pieces. There are other pieces in the shop as well. If you would like the whole set I can make a price adjustment, and, of course, I will always combine orders for shipping savings for you.
A great find for filling in your set or starting a new collection!
Enjoy each day!
