Rare Green Depression Glass Plate - Hocking Spiral Green - 10 Inch Sandwich Plate - Left Swirl - Uranium Glass

Sorry, this item has sold.

Featured here is an uncommon piece from Hocking's Spiral Green pattern (1928-30). This is one of the oldest patterns of the Depression era, and was made into luncheon and dinner sets. This particular piece is their 10-inch Sandwich Plate (measures 9 7/8 inches in diameter). This is one of the more difficult piece to find and is often coveted by collectors. Note that this plate has the "Left Swirl" while the other plates spiral to the right. The plate is in good vintage condition. No cracks or chips. Light utensil scratching. This would be an awesome addition to your Depression or vintage glass collection. BONUS - It's uranium glass so you get the great grow under UV light (see photo).

From Wikipedia:

Uranium glass is glass which has had uranium, usually in oxide diuranate form, added to a glass mix before melting for coloration. The proportion usually varies from trace levels to about 2% by weight uranium, although some 20th-century pieces were made with up to 25% uranium. Uranium glass was once made into tableware and household items, but fell out of widespread use when the availability of uranium to most industries was sharply curtailed during the Cold War in the 1940s to 1990s. Most such objects are now considered antiques or retro-era collectibles.

I've got a large selection of vintage glassware including more uranium glass, Vaseline glass, colored Depression glass, Amberina, and more. Visit my site, WrenchesandWonders.com.
