Item Number: #480
Approximate Size: 6¼” D – 2¾” H
Production Dates: 1939-1974
The American 2056 pattern offered different types of mayonnaise dishes. Consumers had a choice of buying bowls, plates, a Footed Mayonnaise, and even this 2-Part Mayonnaise – complete with two glass ladles. The 2-Part Mayonnaise was also available without the ladles.
Regarding the size of this item, I am listing the height as being approximately 2¾”. There are Fostoria catalogs that list the height as 3¾”; however, I can’t get close to that assessment when measuring any of my pieces. If I measure the bowl’s height with the ladles resting inside the dish, I can get that taller measurement. I am not sure if that is how Fostoria calculated its size, or if this was a clerical error. For a true height measurement of the bowl itself, realize that it is closer to the 2¾” measurement.
