    This is a trash (!) find. The beauty of this platter up close and personal is unbelievable. A quick research gave me the info posted in the title, as well as an idea that it's not a rare item, but i love it nonetheless. The only thing i'd like to know is its age (50', 60', 70's?).
    Thanks for looking and for any leads!

      AnnaB, I love it - I know what you're saying about the beauty up close. I was never a fan of the amber. Until recently. When I purchased my Indiana Glass relish tray, then needed something to pair it with so I ended up with the Lotus Bloom Compote. Now, I am a fan of this color; I will be collecting more of this color. This is a great piece - can't date it for you though (my guess would be 50's-60's).

      Me and you both =) I was never a fan, too. Until you hold it in your hands, you can appreciate it, it's like a piece of real amber, very rich. Thank you for your lovely comment and appreciation, MFT!

      Thomas, thanks for stopping by and the love!

      So cute and whimsical! But why on earth would anyone want to trash it?!!?

      Thank you, Nevada, for your nice comment and love. My extended family lives in one of New York city boroughs, they found it. They said back in the 90's they would often find bags full of perfect kitchenware, some of it valuable vintage, like several Pyrex sets i now have. I guess people who were moving out didnt want to take it, or an old person would pass away and a super cleaned out the apparment without giving a thought to what he was throwing out. The trend changed in 2000's, no such luck any more :-P

      Now something quite the opposite happens. We live in a very small retirement community here in Vegas, and even though my wife and I are in our mid 60s we're two of the younger ones here. A few months ago, a lady in her 90s passed away. She lived alone, so when her body was removed, her house became unoccupied. It didn't take long for several neighbors to rummage through the house and help themselves to several valuable items, until the lady's next of kin arrived from California 1 month later and had the house emptied and then sold. Some people.

      yes, stories like that make me sad on many levels...unfortunately, it happens all over the place, it's happening now across the street where i live.

      AnnaB, Beautiful. I found an example of a cup and saucer in that same pattern, but in clear and ruby:

      *snip*

      This pattern is part of Indiana’s Presentation Crystal Happenings Collection that was made during the 1980’s and 1990’s. While Indiana didn't give it a name, collectors have dubbed it ‘Hobnail’ ‘Bubble’ and ‘Thousand Eye’. The deviled egg relish dish is the most commonly found piece in this pattern, though 8 inch plates and cup & saucer sets can be found with some searching.
