Fostoria American High Foot Comport & Cover

High Foot Comport and Cover

Covered Containers

Item Number:  #386
Approximate Size:  5″ D – 9″ H
Production Dates:  1924-1982

The Comport and Cover is a beautiful piece of Fostoria American glass.  The Comport (with the Cover) has a height of about 9″ and a diameter that is usually between 5″ – 5½”.  Old Fostoria catalogs state the size as 5 inches; however, my own personal pieces measure between 5¼” to 5½”.  Remember, these items were handmade – so expect some slight variation in measurements.

The Comport and Cover looks like the Big Sister or Big Brother to the Jelly and Cover.  Their stems are different, as well as their size; however, they just look like they belong together.  I usually showcase them together, as they compliment each other beautifully.

This piece was produced for a very long time – from around 1924 to circa 1982 – and is not too difficult to find in today’s market.  If you are interested in purchasing the Comport and Cover, please click the following sponsored link for available Comports on eBay.  I would also suggest that you search for the additional term “candy dishes”, as some people are not aware that the dish was called a Comport.
