The Crescent Salad Plate is a plate like no other. Uniquely formed, it instantly captures your attention. The American Salad Plates came in two formations – round, or crescent-shaped. The Crescent Salad Plate is approximately 7½” in length, and about 4½” wide. The top serrated edges flair upward (not sideways), giving the plate a nice side margin to hold the contents of a salad or other food item.
It is of my opinion that these plates should be stored carefully. Since the serrated edges flare upwards (and not to the sides as with the round salad plates) it is a plate that should not be stacked on top of one another. If space is limited – and you find that you have no alternative other than to stack them – make sure that you cushion each plate adequately in order to prevent any damage to the points.
The Crescent Salad Plate did not have a long production life, only being made from approximately 1937-1944. You can usually expect to pay more for the crescent-shaped plates versus the regular round plates.
