- Pattern: Florentine I, Green (aka Poppy)
- Made in USA by Hazel Atlas
- Vintage: early 1940’s
- Description: Such a delight to find depression glass in great condition. This is a very nice serving platter in the beautiful pressed glass pattern called Florentine I -Green, but many call it Poppy. This Hazel Atlas pattern was originally released in 1934, however, the plates with scalloped edges were not released until the early 1940’s, and we also we know that the original colors from 1934 did not include green. The pattern has a repeating pattern of poppies, intertwined with a vine pattern which is very delicate and beautiful. If you like this pattern, we also carry a few of the saucers, salad plates and fruit/dessert bowls. Please search our site for “Florentine” if interested.

Depression glass is clear or colored translucent machine made glassware that was distributed free, or at low cost, in the United States and Canada around the time of the Great Depression starting in the 1920’s but continued past the depression into the 1950’s. Food manufacturers and distributors put a piece of glassware in boxes of food, as an incentive to purchase. Some movie theaters, gas stations and other businesses handed out pieces as a thank you for shopping at their establishment.
