Hello and Welcome to Orbrial's,

we have a 7 ½ inch plate by Dorflinger. It stands 1 1/8" high.

I found no signature but the plate is on a thin Dorflinger style blank. The Marlboro pattern is pictured on page 94 of The American Cut Glass Association Dorflinger Line Drawings catalog reprint. (Thanks to my ABP mentor for that information).

The plate is in very good condition. T is very, very slight wear inside the plate. Not utensil wear. My thinking is that someone very carefully rested another item in this plate. When I tipped it around looking for a signature I saw the slight wear, like very, very light scratches.

Heavy scratches inside a piece can be killer to the sparkle. So please let me emphasize the slight wear inside in no way impacts the sparkle and is not visible unless you are tipping the plate as one will do when looking for a signature.

I count 5 damaged teeth, ranging from the largest

To the smallest

The plate has minimal base wear.

I don't see any other flea bites aside from the reported tooth damage above, at all.

All in all the plate presents as an excellently preserved specimen of ABP.

The Dorflinger is returnable for any reason (in the exact same condition) provided you inform me within seven days of receiving it
