The Cambridge Glass Company of Cambridge, Ohio was one of the leading producers of Elegant Depression Glass in the USA. In 1930, the Cambridge Glass Company introduced Etching #1746, which collectors now call "Gloria".Glass companies usually numbered their patterns - years later the collectors gave names to the patterns. The "Gloria" pattern features large and beautifully-etched poppies featured next to baby's breath and similar-looking flora. This is not an easy-to-find pattern these days and I just unpacked this particular platter from a box that was packed away some 25-35 years ago.
The piece has everything going for it: it is pretty pink, it is HUGE, and it is in PRISTINE CONDITION! What more could you ask for?? This platter measures 12 1/2 inches across (not from handle to handle but from inside handle to inside handle). From handle to handle this platter measures 15 3/4 inches across.
From side to side the platter measures 10 3/4 inches across. It is a LONG and ELEGANT platter!It could be used as an underplate for the largest bowl in this pattern or as a separate platter. The condition, as stated, is PRISTINE with no chips, no cracks, no discoloration, no loss of etching... There are a few tiny bubbles in the glass from manufacture. This is an amazing piece and you will fall in love with it!!
