This is an elaborate piece of depression black amethyst glass. It is a double handled cake plate with gold encrusted trim on the handles, rim, and floral with greek key pressed design. The plate is paneled in eight sections for an octagon shape. It is 13" across handle to handle, 10" across without the handles. There is wear to the gold, but it is mostly present. The glass is deep purple when held to a light. The back has a ground rim. The glass is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. I have not been able to identify the pattern or manufacturer.
