My sister and I found this perfect set of Moderntone Platonite, Hazel Atlas in a Perry, MO antique store last month. Perfect - never used included:
28 items set of 4: 6.75" dinner plates, cups & saucers, sherbert, bowls, bowls w/handles, tumblers.
"In 1936, Hazel-Atlas introduced a type of glass called Platonite, which looks very much like ordinary milk glass but has a more “translucent” or “almost-see-through” quality. Platonite ware was surface-colored by a “fired-on” process, and many shades of color are seen in this type of ware, including yellow, pink, pastel green, light and dark blue, aquamarine, chartreuse, salmon, rust, orange, red, brown, beige and others." http://www.tias.com/glass/depression-glass/hazel-atlas/page/2/
