Lime Green PEACOCKS Plate.
Ice Green PLATES: Has anyone noticed the rather diminished availability of ruffled bowls in this pattern/color? On the other hand, ice green plates seem to appear rather frequently. You may be surprised to learn that the OLD examples in this color are somewhat more intensely colored than the REPROS.
Please click into our - EMERALD GREEN 9” PLATES – segment for this detailed information.
Wesley Strain was a dedicated collector who passed away in the mid- ‘90s. We attended the John Woody auction in St. Louis area on July 25, 1999 when his collection was sold.
You can make a “comparison study” by closely viewing some differences in these three lighter green plates.
Carl O. Burns 2001 Northwood book offers a great summation:
The plates generally measure 9” - 9 ½” in diameter and may be found with plain, ribbed or Basketweave exteriors. As with the bowls, the ribbed exterior seems to be the most often found in most colors. Marigold, amethyst, cobalt blue, white, and ice green examples are more available with ice green probably the most available. Lavender and green are quite scarce, and ice blue examples are very scarce. Rarer still are the smoke, horehound, and Renninger blue plates. Rarest of all is the single known sapphire blue plate. Stippled versions have been documented in only three colors to date: marigold, cobalt blue, and Renninger blue, but I would not be surprised if an amethyst one turned up, as the bowls exist in that color. Strangely, no plates, either plain or stippled, have yet surfaced in aqua opalescent.
9” – 9 ½” stippled plate: marigold, cobalt blue, peach opalescent, Renninger blue.
8” – 9” pie crust edge bowl: marigold, amethyst, green, cobalt blue, white, ice blue, ice green, lavender, Renninger blue, smoke, lime green, aqua opalescent
8” – 9” bowl: marigold, amethyst, green, cobalt blue, white, ice blue, ice green, aqua opalescent, lavender, horehound, aqua, clambroth, honey amber, smoke, ice blue opalescent, lime green opalescent, powder blue opalescent pearlized custard, iridized blue slag, vaseline.
The Peacocks pattern was introduced during Northwood’s iridescent pattern boom years of 1911-1912. It was among the first to be made in the new pastel colors unveiled early in 1912.
