Federal's Petal glassware is a good example where you will find several interesting ways to combine pieces. From what I've read, this is the typical configuration for American Sweetheart. You can imagine this with holiday goodies, maybe trimmed with a bit of greenery or ribbon. The white monax is perfect for wintertime and Christmas!A lot of depression glass patterns included tidbits in their line up which were meant to be fancy serving pieces for little cakes, tarts and candies. People use these for weddings, showers and open house type events where guests can serve themselves. The tidbits look special and make even store-bought cupcakes look great. Recently I bought a set of American Sweetheart monax white depression glass which included this neat piece. It's the original vintage depression glass assembly - in fact the metal has a patina (aka tarnish). My only problem is that I am hopeless with tools and taking things apart. So I'll ship this to the lucky winner intact. I have a lot of confidence in my packing abilities, just not so much in disassembly! Original tidbits like this usually have two plates. The top plate is 8 inches and the bottom is just under 12 inches. Both have the American Sweetheart scroll design all over, including the center. Some tidbits from the 1960s and 70s were made up from bowls or plates or a combination.
