LR 216  Lacy Cup Plate from Fort Pitt Glass WorksLR 216  Lacy Cup Plate from Fort Pitt Glass Works

Here is your opportunity to own a small piece of history, with the beautiful, fanciful cup plate made by the Fort Pitt Glass Works factory in the Pittsburgh area, in the mid 1800's.

Cup plates were very popular from the 1826 into the 1850's in America. They performed many purposes, as a coaster for a tea cup; they helped prevent tables from being marred, and also kept the table linen clean, and acted as a cooling medium to the hot cup of tea.

Number 216, is a clear EAPG cup plate and is one from the Lacy Period, Chiefly Midwestern origin section in the book "American Glass Cup Plates" by Ruth Webb Lee and James H. Rose. The photograph is on page 170 and the description is on page 174. It's considered a conventional cup plate; the diameter is 3 ½". In my opinion, it is in very good condition, with only one of the 54 scallops being chipped.
