The scalloped rim made a nice edge for the rag basket sides of double crochet to snuggle up to. I love how the facets of the cut glass reflect the colors. It isn't something you can plan to happen...it's a happy accident of sorts. I looked this 6.5" flower petal plate up on Ebay...it was listed for $3.60 plus shipping. There were probably a kabillion of them made back when, but it looks like I have one of only two left on the whole wide world web.
You know it's value will likely go through the roof since it has been paired with jewels and jewel toned out of print fabrics as well as gorgeous ribbon yarns in a 'One of a Kind' piece. It doesn't matter that it all came from my 'Junk Jewelry Stash' and 'Scrap Fabric and Yarn Bins'.
