S Pattern Stippled Rose Band Yellow Depression Glass Plate
I came across this pretty little piece of depression glass when I was getting some Dogwood out to wrap and ship to a customer. This is S Pattern or Stippled Rose Band from MacBeth Evans.
S Pattern is like Dogwood in shape and feel with thin glass and a delicate pattern on shapes that are not round. It doesn't photograph well and is prettier in person. The beautiful band on the rim has roses and leaves on a textured band - thus the name Stippled Rose Band - and the center medallion is the same rose blossom, leaves on a textured circle.
MacBeth Evans' depression glass always amazes me with how light it feels. This dinner plate weighs about 1 pound and it's over 9 inches across. Yet I've found very few pieces of this pattern with chips or much wear. Somehow it combines delicacy and light weight with durability and usefulness
That's a good combination to have.
