Vintage Higgins 2-piece Stardust Set, Bowl and Plate, Dearborn, c. 1950s-60s
This wonderful 2-piece set--a ruffled bowl and matching plate--was made by Dearborn Glass Company, from designs by Michael and Frances Higgins, sometime in the period from 1957 to 1964.
Each features the very attractive Stardust design, in the hard-to-find pink and olive green colorway.
The design features a transparent pink glass ground with geometric bands radiating from the center on each ruffle, in transparent olive greens and purples. There are a lot of controlled air bubbles and random air enclosures, and both pieces have a lot of texture and depth.
These display well in plate holders or on a furniture surface. They're also very useful and attractive functional serving dishes.
DimensionsBowl: 7" in diameter x 1-3/8" high; the base is 2-1/2" in diameter.Plate: 7" in diameter x 3/4" high; the base is 4-1/2" in diameter.
Both pieces are in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, heavy scratches, or other problems.
Marked with "higgins", reversed through the decoration and fused into the glass.Note: The white hotspots and reflections are from the lights.
