Buttercups, crystal and cake, what an entrancing combination. Every time I see this large etched plate with the sweet rolled up rim I visualize it holding a special cake for a birthday party or wedding shower. This pattern with the all over wide open flowers, leaves and scrolls is called Buttercup and it comes to us from Fostoria Glass. Buttercup is one of those patterns that brides got for wedding gifts in the early 1950s and now are passing on to their families. It's a sleeper pattern with ever more people collecting it and looking for pieces to augment what they got from their mom or grandmother. I buy Buttercup when I can and this particular piece came from an estate sale where the mother was in ill health and moving to assisted living. This plate is called a torte plate in the Fostoria catalogs so consider it a large cake plate. It's 14 inches wide so you can put almost any size or shape cake on it, or use it for your special breakfast muffins or beautifully decorated cupcakes or even sandwiches. Using special serving pieces is a good way to make your table even more special. If you want a special cake plate for that special day, consider a vintage etched piece like this. It will make your day even more memorable.
