We’ve had a couple posts about MacBeth Evans Petalware depression glass, the more recent is about the monax white Petalware and the other looks at the pink Petalware depression glass. This will be our last post about Petalware for a while, but it is such a neat pattern that so many creative people felt compelled to decorate that I wanted to show you a couple of the designs.
This plate is the Florette design which has red flowers and leaf sprays hand painted. You can see this is a simple design that effectively decorates the plain center and looks great on the translucent white glass.
The other one we’ll show is an older piece we no longer have (so there are no links and the photo is poor) but it shows the darker cremax color and one of the striped designs. From what I’ve read there were several versions of the stripes in different colors, including a pastel one with blue and pink stripes. This saucer is bold colored.
The last one to show is a gold-trimmed design. The gold comes off easily with an eraser and it should not be washed in the dishwasher. Of course you would avoid washing any depression glass in the dishwasher to avoid heat stressing it.
