L.E. Smith Mt Pleasant Black Amethyst Glass Plate. The L.E. Smith Glass company was founded in Mt Pleasant, Pennsylvania in 1907. Lewis E. Smith was a sometimes-employed chef who took over an an abandoned glass factory in order to make containers for his secret mustard sauce. He became so enamored of the glass making process however, that he spent all his time producing glass kitchenware. Mr. Lewis invented the glass percolator top, the first glass mixing bowls, a redesigned reamer and a glass chicken feeder. In 1911, after establishing a thriving business, Smith took his mustard recipe and left without a word. The company continued operating and subsequent owners kept the name. Like all the other glass companies of the time, L.E. Smith began producing colored glass in the mid 1920's. In the late 1920's, they hit upon a formula for black glass that set them apart from other manufacturers of the time. This black glass, which shows amethyst when held up to a light, has proved to be the most collected of L.E. Smith's wares. The Mt Pleasant pattern was produced in black amethyst as well as pink, blue, green, crystal and white. This plate has the double shield on the bottom, it is 8" across and is in excellent condition.
