This set of 4 Vintage Original Federal Depression Glass Madrid Pattern Grill Plates are in excellent condition. These were made between 1932-1939I see no utensil marks on them. NO chips etc. I would say Near Mint Condition. A little history:
Original Madrid pattern depression glass was made by Federal Glass Company and produced from 1932 to 1939. In 1976 Federal changed the pattern name to Recollection and began making new pieces from new molds. The first new pieces of Recollection were easily identified because pieces were dated in the mold with the year "1976". But then Federal went bankrupt and the molds were sold to Indiana Glass who removed the date from the molds. There have been problems separating old from new ever since. All Recollection pieces have been made in new molds; no old molds are used.
