Westmoreland English Hobnail Glass Luncheon Set- Great For Parties

Past few weeks, I've been planning for not one, but two, baby showers.  Baby showers can sometimes be as almost stressful as wedding showers, with all the planning, making sure you have all the necessities, with hopes that you have everything you need for the party.

From thinking about everything I need for the 'theme' of the party to whether I've covered all basics, I tend to find myself trying to make everything perfect...or as near perfect as I can.

One of the things I find as a must have, is glassware.  Any type of glass dishes, bowls or candy cups that will add elegance to a party.  The glass set shown here, is the Westmoreland English Hobnail Glass Luncheon Set, sold by Invitingly Vintage, on Etsy.

If you are looking for unique pieces, Etsy is the place to go.  It's one of the first places I look, for that one of a kind item. This Westmoreland English Hobnail Glass Luncheon Set comes with 6 pieces.  It consists of 2 luncheon plates, 2 grapefruit bowls and 2 condiment cups.  This luncheon set is absolutely gorgeous!  The way the glassware shines underneath the lights, it's so beautifully made!

The set was made in Westmoreland between 1920-1940's.  The plates have an overall pattern of English Hobnail, along the edge of the plates, with a sawtooth rim.  The bottom of the plates have a pressed glass geometric pattern, very unique and elegant. The condiment or dip cups are small, dainty and have an English Hobnail pattern, as well as a pedestal base and a sawtooth rim.

The dimensions of the set are:

  • Grapefruit Bowls - 1 3/8 inches tall & 6 3/4" wide
  • Luncheon Plates-   8 1/4 inches tall 
  • Nut/candy/condiment cups - 3 inches long, 2 inches tall & 1 3/4 inches wide
This Westmoreland English Hobnail Glass Luncheon Set is ideal and perfect for weddings, baby showers, parties, special occasions and holidays.  I wish you could see these dishes in person.  I can't explain just how beautiful this set is...the photos don't do them justice.

If you are into vintage pieces and looking for elegant and classy glass dish sets for your party, head on over to Invitingly Vintage, on Etsy, and check out all the things Mel has to offer!  They also have a beautiful Vintage Blue Willow Luncheon Set that reminds me of the dishes my grandmother used to have.
