This plate is cut in Libbey’s popular and desirable Ellsmere pattern. It is signed in the center with the Libbey tradmark.
A flat hobstar is flanked on either side by two bands of triple-miter cane. This main portion of the pattern is encircled in what looks like partial circles-something I imagine wasn’t particularly easy to execute. Rising from this area is fine crosshatching met with deeply cut notched prism which creates the an extremely tasteful border. The center of the plate has a complex 6-point hobstar formation.
The plate is on an excellent blank and measures 6 3/4″ wide and 1 1/4″ tall. It’s in perfect condition. I should also mention that 6 3/4″ is the standard size for these plates, which most other companies cut pieces closer to 7″, Libbey seemed to cut this blank 1/4″ short on both the 7″ and 12″ sizes – it’s is not repaired.
