Featured is a vintage Jeannette glass or Depression glass cake plate with sunflower pattern. This is about 10 inches in diameter, sits about 1 1/4 inches high on three feet, and is in good condition. There are some faint scratches on the face of the plate that can be seen if held up to the light. There is some light scuffing to the bottom of the three feet due to normal everyday use. No chips. No cracks. A beautiful piece. Perfect color for your holiday table. This is a nice piece of uranium glass so it glows nicely under UV light.
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.
I do combine shipping and refund shipping overages in excess of $1.50 (covers shipping materials) above actual cost, I’m not trying to make money off of shipping charges. I strive to ship items no later than the following business day. Items are generally shipped USPS priority mail which includes $50 insurance. All items are carefully packaged. If an item is damaged during shipping, please take pictures and let me know immediately so a claim can be filed with the shipper. If you prefer an alternate shipping method please send me a message to discuss options.
Sometimes Priority Mail shipping is cost prohibitive (especially for those on the West Coast). Send me a message and we’ll see if Flat Rate shipping is possible. Prices for this service is generally about $19 for a “Large” box and about $13.65 for a “Medium” box. Note that USPS Flat Rate boxes aren’t that big, so this might not be an option when purchasing larger items.
All items are described as accurately as possible, and any damage noted. Items are twenty or more years old and may show wear consistent with age/use. I encourage you to ask any questions prior to purchase. I generally do not accept returns, but there are always exceptions, so please message me if you feel you need to return an item. If you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason please reach out right away so that we may reach an amicable solution, I want you to be happy with and enjoy your purchase!
I enjoy finding vintage pieces and moving them along to new homes. I’m an easy going person and do this more as a hobby than a business, I like researching these old items to find their origins/history. If you want to discuss any items listed, tell me I’m way off base on my pricing, wrong on my description, or whatever convo me!

It's beautiful in person and condition is as described. It does fluoresce under blacklight! Fast shipping and very well packaged, because when the box got to me it was crushed in on one side, but the cake plate was not damaged. I'm going to use it to display my wedding cake!
