Imperial CAPE COD 6 3/4" Bread & Butter Plates (10)
$25 set of 10
These crystal Imperial CAPE COD bread and butter or salad plates are all in excellent condition; no chips, cracks, or usage. The listed size for the bread and butter #1D is 6.5" but these are closer to 6 3/4" and can easily function as a salad plate (an old Cape Cod catalog does list a #1604 1/2 salad plate of 6 3/4" so I suspect this is what they are, though the newer glass catalogs don't list these). In fact, 6 of them are slightly different from the other 4, though both measure the same; see pictures 2-4. In the pictures, you can see that the one on the right has a slightly taller underseat, a smaller center, and a smaller plain band for the outermost pattern; 4 of these are like the one on the right and 6 are like the one on the left. I don’t see anything else listed for this size plate in the books (except the salad plate as mentioned above), but replacements.com calls the bread plate “aka the mayonnaise underplate” so maybe that’s the difference (although my books don't list a mayo plate in this size). Imperial Glass made Cape Cod (Blank #160) from 1932-1983, primarily in crystal. Listing is for a set of all 10 plates (only one shown).
