Item Number: #555
Production Dates: 1933-1970
In addition to dinnerware and accessories, Fostoria Glass also produced Tortes, Trays, and Platters. The American Oval Platter was available in two sizes – this smaller 10½” version, and a larger 12″ size.
The Oval Platters are quite substantial in weight and function. The smaller 10½” size was not produced quite as long as the bigger version, so expect to find fewer of those in your travels. That being said, both sizes are still relatively easy to locate today. I seem to find more of them online than when visiting antique stores. If a buyer saw them in person while treasure hunting, I have no doubt they would purchase them fairly quickly.
Both of the platters have the same basic design, and their only true difference is size. If you are interested in learning more about current availability and pricing for similar items, please click the following sponsored link for available Oval Platters on eBay.
