If there is one thing I absolutely love in my kitchen it would be this serving platter. I was helping my dear friend clean out her "cupboards" one day (I say cabinets) and she gave this to me! I don't know much about it, but I love it to say the least. Did I mention I love this? :D

    very nice Elegant Glass center handled server; pretty sure it is the 'Empress' pattern by Heisey

    Oh thank you Tallcakes for the info. Do you know what one would call this platter with the handle? I am thinking "platter" isn't the right word for it. I use this to serve finger sandwiches at special parties.

    generically it's called a 'center handled server', or just a 'server' for short.

    Oh, and sometime called a 'tidbit tray'

    These were also refered to as "Center handled sandwich trays" apparently popular for serving little tea sandwiches for bridge parties.

    It is Heisey's Empress, with a nice rock crystal cutting, possibly done by a decorating firm rather than by Heisey.
