This vintage blue glass is so spectacular. This is a salad or luncheon plate from New Martinsville Glass in their striking Art Deco pattern "Radiance" in Ice Blue. It is pretty rare to find pieces in this pattern.
New Martinsville Glass was formed in 1900 and they introduced their unusual Radiance pattern in 1937 - it was just one of a few innovative and spectacular Art Deco patterns they produced during that period. Can you tell I adore this glass company? Later on they became Viking Glass, but it's the period between the 20s and 40s where I really love their patterns, and their colors. New Martinsville bridges the gap between depression glass companies and elegant glass companies. I think of them as elegant glass because of the quality, but apparently they aren't considered in the same vein as Fostoria, for example.
Radiance, particularly on the plates, has a wonderful sunburst type of pattern with a bat wing edging. This is ideal for elegant entertaining. Super vintage decor.
CONDITION: Very good with no chips, cracks, or nicks. They do have quite a lot of scratch/scuff marks from use - this is extremely common in glass of this age. It comes from the plates being stacked on top of each other, or when the knife cuts across the plate.
SIZE: Plate is 8 1/4 inches wide.
