Pretty set of three green Depression era salad plates in the Rose Cameo pattern made by the Belmont Tumbler Company, ca 1931. All available sources give the measurement of 7 inches for the Rose Cameo salad plate (the only plate made in this pattern by Belmont) but across the top mine measure between 6 3/4 and 6 7/8 inches. Only if the measurement is taken with a tape across the bottom will they measure 7 inches.
Condition: One plate has a tiny peck on its edge, all three have light scratches from use, as commonly found. Very nice condition overall either for table use or display.
Due to the chemistry of the glass formula used to make this glassware it fluoresces under black-light, as shown. When many pieces of a set are lit up in this way in a showcase or china cabinet it can make for a dramatic display .
Uncommon antiques for the investor, as well as choice collectibles for the clever collector.
COLLECTION: A time machine on a shelf or a museum in the kitchen. Reach out and touch the memory of sweet childhood laughter.
