FOSTORIA Footed Bowl, Mid Century Glass, Serving Bowl, American Glass, Fostoria Americana, Made in USA, Round Serving Bowl, Prismed Glass


  • Details
    This is a sparklingly beautiful small round bowl that sits on three short glass feet. As with almost all of the wide range of pieces in this prismed American pattern the sparkle thrown off by the all over prism pattern is remarkable. That in itself makes Fostoria American earn its keep simply as a display piece in a china cabinet or on an open shelf. However, true to its hard working middle American roots it was actually designed and produced to work, and work it can. It might start off serving snacks,nuts, or crackers, turn to tomatoes, lettuce, or pickles, maybe serve some sauce or small garnish in the midst of a meal and end with cookies, bons bons, or other sweet treats. The relatively small depth, but well turned up sides let the user easily see and get to what's offered, but not easily spill it over the side.

    This bowl was manufactured sometime in the mid 20th century by the Fostoria Glass Co. in West Virginia. Fostoria American remains today probably the most popular and beloved of mid 20th century glass patterns. Because it is as heavy and practical as it is sparkling and beautiful it is still widely collected and commonly used for formal and informal special occasions and every day uses.
