This is a very nice small Opal Milk Glass plate from Westmoreland Glass Company entitled "Ancient Castle". It has a fancy scrolling reticulated outer border design and a central highly detailed design of a castle. There is a beaded circle around the inner well of the plate. Westmoreland was in business from 1889 until 1984. In 1980 Westmoreland was bought out by David Grossman who closed the bushiness for good in 1984.
This piece is rather scarce, perhaps even rare, because of the limited production under Grossman.
It measures 7 1/2" in diameter. On the back is a mark, "Westmoreland" in a circle around "III", otherwise known as the Grossman mark. Other than one bit of minor roughness along the inside rim of the foot (invisible when displayed or sitting flat upon a table top), it is free of damage.
A lovely addition to a collection or for display!
Enjoy each day!
