The 2-Part Vegetable Dish is another useful item in the American pattern. It is very similar to the Oval Vegetable Dish, with one noticeable difference – the center divider. It’s size is perfect, and it’s oval design makes it easy to pass around the table.
This vegetable dish is often confused with the American Whitehall 2-Part Oval Relish Dish. Any easy way to distinguish between the two is to look at the bottom of each piece. The Fostoria American 2-Part Vegetable Dish has twenty-four rays, whereas the look-alike bowl (produced by Indiana Glass Company) has twenty rays in their bottom design. Also worth noting is that the Whitehall piece was produced in Crystal, Evergreen, and a Peach color. If you should find this piece in any of those colors, with 20 rays in the bottom center design, then you definitely know it is not Fostoria American.
