Royal Lace was produced by the Hazel Atlas Glass company in Washington PA as early as 1934. This depression glass pattern is one of the most expensive and the most sought after of all the patterns in depression glass. The most desirable color is in the Ritz blue, also known as cobalt blue. (Hazel Atlas had called their medium blue glass Ritz Blue in advertisements, however modern collectors refer to this color as cobalt blue).
The Royal Lace pattern was a full service pattern, meaning that production included every piece for a full service dinnerware setting. These pieces include dinner plates, lunch plates, cake plates, tumblers in two sizes, berry bowls and rimmed bowls, cup, saucer, salt and pepper, and a cream and sugar with lid. Serving pieces include pitchers, master berry bowls, serving bowls, large serving plates and platters and a butter dish
