Chop Plates
SOME INTERESTING CHOP PLATE PATTERNS
Compiled by D/D Fry…….7/10/03

This area of collecting old Carnival Glass involves plates of varying size…..Generally speaking, chop plates are those ranging from about 9 ½”- 13”. Since Chrysanthemum and Homestead, both from Imperial Glass, have never been found in bowl form, we presume they are “intended” plates. The other patterned examples we call chop plates have indeed been seen in bowl form far more often than in the flattened shape. In discussing plate shape, whether 6”, 9”, or these larger sizes, it should be clear that straight edges are the modus operandi. Sometimes an example with ever so slightly turned outer edges are referred to as “plate”, when in fact, they cannot be considered a “true plate”. This size is not available nearly as often as the two smaller sizes mentioned.

We will discuss eighteen patterns here, which is only about half of those known. We suggest that for your further exploration into this subject, a membership in the HOACGA Club will enable you to purchase a notebook section covering the spectrum. That collectors club maintains a loose-leaf insert covering individual categories of many types of old carnival glass, creating a new section with color-photos each year. This is a worthwhile learning tool for Beginners.
