Product description

Early American pattern glass "Eureka" ("Clear Diagonal Band") antique bread plate
 
An early American pattern glass antique pressed glass oval bread plate, manufacturer unknown, in the "Clear Diagonal Band" (a.k.a. "California") design. Although this design incorporates the motto "Eureka" - the cry of the California Gold Rush of 1849 - the plate is in fact a later commemorative piece, probably dating from the 1880s.
 
Although the plate shows various signs of age (see condition description below), together with various manufacturing imperfections including a few tiny air bubbles and a long linear "straw mark" (shear line) to the upper surface to the top right of the centre, it remains an attractively displayable piece which would make an interesting addition to a collection of antique pressed glass, kitchenalia or Gold Rush memorabilia.
