    The Duncan and Miller Glass Company introduced the "old Hobnail" pattern in 1930. The pattern was first made in Crystal, Cranberry pink and Cape Cod blue according to their add in House and Garden magazine in 1940. The pattern is also called 'Early American Hob Nail' and 'Hobnail'. The 'Old Hobnail' pattern was made from 1930-1955 and this piece is one of the most highly sought after in the Duncan Miller product line #118. Many collectors refer to the cake stand as 'Giant Hobnail' because of the huge hobs around the perimeter of the plate. The milk glass was most likely made by Tiffin, as USG got the molds when DMG closed down in 1955.

      My wife collects cake plates as well. I can't believe we didn't notice your stuff earlier! Very nice! We'll post some of hers soon, thanks for sharing!!

      Weatherman shows a 1930 ad (year the pattern was introduced), and that ad mentions only the colors of crystal, green, amber, and rose, which is quite typical for colored glassware in 1930. Another ad in 1932 mentions ruby violet vases and ivy balls being "new". Also mentioned in this trade journal ad: "The flower holders are made in amber, crystal, green, blue, and rose glass in addition to ruby."
      According to Weatherman, D&M introduced its opalescent colors in 1940.
      The milk glass cake stand was undoubtedly produced by the Tiffin factory of USGCo after 1955 when they acquired D&M moulds.

      Morning TCakes! Found a Fenton ribbon cake plate recently and immediately thought if you.
    9. TallCakes TallCakes, 8 years ago
      Hi AmberRose, was it the wavy edge milk glass with a ribbon of clear glass at the edge? If so that would be Wave Crest and I do have one of those somewhere.
    10. AmberRose AmberRose, 8 years ago
      Yes it does, and I'm sure you do :))
    11. Paul71 Paul71, 8 years ago
      Think you mean Silver Crest
    12. TallCakes TallCakes, 8 years ago
      you are correct Paul; that is assuming one is referencing a clear glass ribbon edge that Fenton marketed by their name "Crest", which was offered in various colors.
