U.S. Glass Plates

U.S. Glass made a moderate variety of plates and we are still identifying ones that are commonly confused with the plates of other makers. Most U.S. Glass plates have ground bases (stuck up). This is the best way to separate the 8-inch plates with wide panels from those made by Imperial. U.S. Glass plates range from the small 4.5-inch wide mayonnaise and sherbet underplates to one with 16 optic, wide panels that can be nearly 13.5-inches in diameter. Some plates have a star pattern impressed into the base, similar to those of Diamond Glass. Plates in opaque colors are very difficult to find.
