    This platter is 22" in diameter and weighs 15 lbs. I couldn't pass this one up just because it is a big hunk of glass in its original box. I believe that a punch bowl and cups go with this platter. I am going back to the thrift shop tomorrow and see if they have the punch bowl and glasses. They weren't there today. Sometimes things trickle out to the floor over a few days. If they aren't out tomorrow, I will ask about them. They have several Anchor Hocking punch bowl sets and snack sets in their original boxes, too. My guess is that the inventory of an antique shop was recently donated to this thrift shop.

      it's unfortunate that this is known as 'Daisy and Button' as it has neither motif included. This was originally made by McKee Bros c1910 and named 'Rotec' and it has cane and pointed oval with hobstar motifs included. The form could be either a torte plate or underplate for punch bowl...

      Thanks, TallCakes! Maybe I'll find out tomorrow what it was sold as if there is anything else associated with it at the thrift shop.

      Smith made the punch set with bowl, cups and underplates for many years. IIRC my mom got a set with S&H green stamps back in the 60s or 70s.

      I love this! I’ve been looking for one to complete my great grandmothers set from the 40’s. Beautiful, you’re so fortunate to have come across this.

      You can find these pretty easily on ebay, donjuan. They are not uncommon.

      I’ve looked everywhere. Can seem to just find the underplate

      Do a search and save it for "L. E. Smith" "daisy and button platter". One will pop up eventually. I've seen two or three at a time for sale on ebay, in the past. There are a couple of other L E Smith patterns for the same size platter, if you just want one that works. Yeah, I don't see any on there right now, but when I found this one a couple of years ago, there were three of them on ebay.

      I have an L E Smith punch bowl and cups that works with this platter. I think I posted that one on CW, too....
