Beautiful Libbey Ellsmere Variation 12″ Plate
This platter is cut in Libbey’s own variation of the Ellsmere pattern – it is signed with the Libbey Sabre in the center. The blank is exceptionally clear which is evedent when looking at the deep miters around the edge. This piece is cut on the traditional Libbey 12″ plate blank and is pie shaped with the rise.
A hobstar lies in the center of this piece and is surrounded on all sides by six bursting fans. Lying further from the center are 6 large hobstars as well. The edge of the tray is absolutely stunning. The traditional border of the Ellsmere pattern is present with notched prism and crosshatching divided by deep miters. This cutting is divided six times around the edge by thick bands of triple-miter cane. It’s an incredible rim treatment which is unique to just this pattern.
The tray is in excellent condition – I only find 3 extremely small fleabites around the rim. The blank is spectacular and the edge just comes to life on the vibrant crystal. The plate measures 11 7/8″ in diamter and 1 7/8″ tall.
