This is the Fostoria American 3-Toed Bowl – 10″. Many people refer to these bowls as “fruit bowls”. These pieces; however, also have many other uses. Use your imagination, as just about anything can be served in them. Whatever it is; it will most certainly look spectacular.
This bowl was extremely popular, and therefore, it has many look-alikes and/or reproductions. Because it had a long production life with Fostoria, and with all the reproductions that were since made, this is a piece that is still rather easy to find in the aftermarket.
The Whitehall and American Whitehall pattern also produced a very similar bowl (or Look-Alike). It is quite common to see one of these pieces marked as genuine Fostoria American. There are definite differences to the trained eye, so please be careful when buying this particular piece.
