Jeannette Glass Company’s Camellia Pattern Salad Plate

Dec 11, 2023 | Museum Monday Treasures

This week’s Museum Monday treasure from the Museum of American Glass in WV is a salad plate in the Jeannette Glass Company’s Camellia pattern. It is 8 ¼” in diameter and was part of a relatively small gift ware line that also included a luncheon plate, a cup & saucer, a cream & sugar set, and a candlestick. We have a pair of the latter in our collection. They are 2 5/8” high with a base diameter of 5”. These pieces were made ca. 1947 to 1951 and are great examples of how attractive “dime store” glass could be.
