I came across this piece in a local thrift shop. I always wonder how it made its way from West Virginia to a small Ontario town. But I guess during its 80+ years there was lots of time for travel. A poster in the Everyday and Elegant Glass Forum reports that this etch was introduced in 1933 and discontinued in 1939.
The etch is Fostoria’s #320 – Fruit Design and the line is #2419 – Mayfair.
This is a good sized, heavy piece. The dish is 13 1/4 inches at its longest, 7 3/4 inches wide in the middle and 9 1/4 inches at its widest points. It stands 1 1/4 inches.
The glass is so bright it almost glows. It is a very attractive piece.
