This plate is a piece of Early AmericanPattern Glass and dates from the 1870's - 1890s. Many different companies produced platters with a portion of the Lords Prayer around the rim.

    This one is in the "Dewdrop and Star" pattern, originally made by Campbell, Jones, and Company ca. 1877. Keep in mind this particular bread plate was reproduced. Can't tell from your photos if yours is original or repro.

    Can't rely on so called "straw marks" to reliably ascertain the age of pressed glass, Mark. The repro of this plate was made in the early 70s by Imperial Glass Co. for Old Sturbridge Village. Repros *should* be marked OSV on the edge for Old Sturbridge Village. Also, the letters on the repros appear to be thinner than on originals.

    I have cake stands in this pattern and understand the pattern name to be 'Dewdrop With Star' with patent #s 10096 and 10297, 7/17/1877. I've usually see 'Dewdrop and Star' noted as an AKA but realize that I always have room to learn. Not to be confused with "Dewdrop In Points" by Brilliant.

    Cakes, some call it "Dewdrop with Star", some "Dewdrop and Star", these are both AKAs, as the OMN is Pearl. Most people don't know that, however.
