    Information needed on small crystal Peacock 5 3/4" plates with an M. I contacted Mosser Glass and they say they are not theirs.
    The detail is excellent. Can any one help me with these.
    I got them at an auction and the person had collected Pattern Glass.

      my guess would me same as your to look to Mosser. I don't think it is Metro Museum of Art as glass made for them by various companies is marked MMA. One online reference from Corning Museum has no maker IDed:

      I contacted the Met's customer service and this was the response I got:

      Dear Friend of the Museum:

      I found some information on the plates which we were selling back in 1987.

      Peacock Plates: English 19th century. The peacock associated with display and vainglory, decorates these charming small plates. The reproductions, like the original, are made of clear pressed glass. Excellent for serving hors d’oeuvres or dessert. Dian 5-3/4”.

      Thank you for your support of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
