I have this person thats asking about this platter. All I can tell her is that I bought it at a yard sale. She really likes it ALOT. She is a family friend, and her birthday is coming up. This would be a perfect gift and then some info. to go along with it, would put the icing on the cake. Thank You. It has a couple of marks that look like a thumb print,not sure if you can see them. The platter looks porcelain.

Not light blue Milkglass is it? Fenton comes to mind. They would make things occasionally that are one of a kind type instead of their usual sets or many pieces of a color or style, Hobnail, Ming, Velvatone,Snowcrest, Coindot, etc. Could that be where a sticker was on the back of platter in those 2 places. They often used a sticker on their pieces.

Thanks to all who have helped! The markings on the back are not very visible, What I have been able to see are two marks that are a round like circle with 7 verticle lines, these lines are very faint at first I thought the mark was "minton" but that was a no go. I'll keep searching with the info you all have given. Thanks to all
