Item Number:  369
Approximate Size:  11½″ D – 4″ H
Production Dates:  1938-1970

Fostoria Glass Company produced an item in their American line that was called the “Cheese and Cracker”.  It consisted of two individual pieces – the Footed Cheese, and the Cracker Plate. When these pieces were produced, you could either buy the two-piece set together – or you could buy the Footed Cheese and/or the Cracker Plate independently of each other.  For this reason, you often see the pieces separated or misidentified.

The Cracker Plate is approximately 11½” in diameter.  I often see the Cheese and Cracker set sold with the wrong plate – the 11½” Sandwich Plate. The difference between the two plates is that the Cracker Plate has a raised retainer ring in the center; the Sandwich Plate does not.  The retainer ring, which is about a 3½” circle, helps to hold the Footed Cheese in place.
