Boston College of Nursing Pairpoint Glass Cup Plate 776 Vintage 1947 - 1997 Collectible Window Decoration Handcrafted on Cape Cod, Made in USA This rare Pairpoint Glass cup plate celebrates the 1997 50th anniversary of Boston College School of Nursing. Please note that the last photo is provided for size illustration purposes only and does not depict the exact item for sale. Handcrafted on Cape Cod using traditional techniques, each 3.5 inch cup plate is an expression of the artisan's skill. Employing hammer and chisel, the craftsman meticulously created a steel mold for every design. With an antique press, molten glass was pressed into the engraved mold, resulting in a series of cup plates that possess similarity, yet retain their unique characteristics. The irregularities serve as a testament to the handmade nature of each piece, adding to their inherent charm. Embedded within the design, you will find the artisan's initials and the Pairpoint trademark. Besides their aesthetic appeal, these cup plates serve various practical purposes. They can be used as catchall dishes to keep track of small trinkets like keys or jewelry, or as ring dishes to safely hold your cherished treasures.
