SOLD Beautiful antique glass floral cake plate.

Made by Jeannette Glass Company in the 1930s.  Pattern called "Sunflower".
Pressed raised decor is detailed and very eye pleasing.  Surface is smooth, underside has raised pattern.
Stands 1.5" tall on 3 stylized feet.  For large cakes, measures 10" wide.
Dark green color was achieved by adding Uranium to the glass recipe. Result is called "Vaseline Glass" which glows bright green under blacklight (see image 3). Vaseline glass is not dangerous to health. They added the mineral in the old days to strengthen and color the glass (shades of green or yellow).
In good condition.  2 small rim chiggers have been professionally smoothed (not noticeable). There is a dark wavy line within the glass. The inclusion was there when it was made.  Does not affect the integrity of the glass and is common in Depression glassware.  Otherwise, in very nice condition.
