Hi All,
This is my first post, so please forgive mistakes.
I am looking for an I.D. On this plate. It is 10 1/2 in. Diameter. It has a floral scroll Sterling rim with Grecian urns. I also have a dessert pedistal. The pedistal has 2 seams on the base. Any direction is greatly appreciated. Thank you for looking!

Good 'nuf, I guess... :-D

...is that so very loved in the UK that it meriths its own glass type...?

(Sometimes, in the papers accompanying the export catalogues, there are ...er... surprising words and sentences. OTOH: cultural differences are not only geographical, can also be time-related.  We may never know why a "custard")

Thanks for showing. It's a little bit exuberant, isn't it? Are there any IoWSG ranges not represented in it, in some small way?  ;D

and... while I am here: what, exactly, is the "custard" part of the Swe export "custards", please?

Most dictionaries insist at giving me "thick, egg based, vanilla-flavoured sauce" as an explanation of custard. But that would not be drinkable from those small cups?

Even if we were talking of "frozen custard" the cups would be on the small side, IMO.

-  there are other models called custards in old Swe catalogues. Howver: all hold a very small amount.
Some custards have a foot - but are still very small.

Possibly a Schnapps or a liqueur glass. I've seen this with a decanter http://lustrousstone.co.uk/cpg/displayimage.php?pid=31 and sometimes you see them with glass barrels and hanging on the wooden frame holding the barrel

I have two not vwery good pics of the 4 "punsch" cups we have in the museum.
(at special request, I can take them out of their display cases)

I realise the measauring stick is partly misleading, because ot the perspective, but it should be clear-ish that they are of the same general size as the OP's cups.
