Industria Argentina, Cristalerias Papina

The pattern is composed of flower-like stars separated by small plumes. The shapes shown above are this 6-inch vase with the lettering "INDUSTRIA ARGENTINA" moulded into its side, a small bowl, and a 15-inch chop plate.

Other known shapes, all marigold, are:
Small plate: from the same mould as the small bowl.
Large bowl (10.5-inch): from the same mould as the chop plate.
Cake plate: a production-line piece comprised of the chop plate, setting on the upside-down vase shown above. This was obviously a secondary use for the vase, as when used as a base the "INDUSTRIA ARGENTINA" moulded into its side is upside-down.

Also known as Argentina Star. Marigold chop plates sold in 2000 for $200, in 2001 for $30, and in 2006 for $65. In 2016 another chop plate sold for $250.

In 2007, a marigold 6-inch vase sold for $200.

Fruit bowl and base: uses the same two moulds as the cake plate, but with the cake plate fashioned into the large bowl. The marie of the chop plate/bowl was made to fit into the base of the vase. Photo courtesy of Wroda Auctions.

This fruit bowl and base sold in 2016 for $400.
