Square vintage plates are now high on my list of favorites here at Southern Vintage Table.  Whether it’s a dinner, salad or dessert plate, glass or porcelain, the unexpected shape is a sweet surprise!  They look terrific layered and also make fabulous serving dishes.

One classic vintage square plate pattern is Madrid by Federal Glass, manufactured during the early 1930s in Columbus, Ohio.  This is the only Madrid dinner plate I have found on my adventures and will be a lovely serving plate for sweet treats or hors d’oeuvres.

This depression glass pattern was also made in clear, pink, green and blue.

Here’s a beter look at the intricate detail of the Madrid pattern.

Classic blue and white – a look we all love. This white swirl salad plate by Johnson Brothers between the two vintage blue dishes makes this place setting distinctive.

Liberty Blue, Regency White and Bluebonnet vintage china patterns

This setting features a square plate with a Godey print.  The image comes from a publication called Godey’s Lady’s Book which was popular in the mid to late1800s.  Here’s a link to the site, Accessible Archives, with articles from this vintage publication – very interesting material!
