Cambridge Glass made beautifully etched glassware. Cambridge glass was hand finished and was not mass produced. Each piece passed through many hands before being ready for sale. It was sold in high end department stores and jewelry stores. This elegant dome covered butter or cheese features the Diane etch produced between 1931-1956. The Diane pattern is not as readily found as other Cambridge etches.
This dish is 7 inches tall and the base is 1.5 inches deep. The finial is a round clear globe. The base is footed and has two ornate open handles. The pattern is a delicate floral etch with blossoms and leafy tendrils.
The butter dish has been black light tested and glows yellow green which is consistent with expectations of the test as a result of the chemicals used in glass manufacturing in the earlier years. The only flaw is a manufacturing flaw, a small bubble near the edge of the dish which is considered a manufacturing flaw rather than damage.
This dish is without chips, cracks or flaws. It is a beautiful piece of vintage crystal and is in very good condition.
