     An interesting note about American pressed flint patterned plates made during the 1850s, 60s or 70s by many different glass companies is that they are all 6" in diameter, give or take 1/2".  We've never seen a 7", 8" or 9" plate in any of the patterns shown here. 
     There were plates made in lacy glass earlier in 4-5" diameter - we call them 'toddy plates' & they are sold in our Lacy Glass Stores HERE.
     And non-flint plates beginning in the late 1860s  were made in a large variety of sizes, up to 11" in diameter.
     Why do you suppose that is....
