Fostoria American | Salad Plate 7", with small center.The American pattern offered a variety of sizes and shapes when it came to Salad Plates. The Fostoria Glass Company also produced a large Salad Plate, and one of the main differences between the smaller (7″) and larger (8½”) Salad Plates – besides the size variation – is the center design of the plate.  The larger Salad Plate has a large center; the smaller Salad Plate has a small center.

Many people often confuse the 7″ Salad Plates with the 6″ Bread and Butter Plates, even though there is definitely a size difference between them.  Simply put, they look quite similar.  Both plates have the small centers.  With a quick glance, and not having a ruler or tape measure with you, it would be easy to confuse the two.

Luckily for us, the 7″ Salad Plates were produced for almost fifty years, so they are still relatively easy to find.  Just bear in mind, the sizes are approximate – as these pieces were handmade.  Even though the Fostoria Glass Company described this particular Salad Plate as being 7″ in size, many plates were produced upwards to 7½” or more.
