Identification square glass dish. Copying Whitefriars style?
« on: August 13, 2012, 06:40:43 PM »
I bought this 11" square blue glass dish or plate in a charity shop because I like it and it looks really eye-catching. Can anyone identify the manufacturer and or period please?

It looks like slumped glass. I don't think it's that old.

I have several of those, bought in John Lewis a couple of Christmases ago with dried fruits and nuts on. No idea where the glass plates were made, I'm afraid.
