The Jelly dishes that were produced in the American pattern are interesting. The reason is because they made three different versions that did not have covers, and one that was offered with – or without – a cover. Most people are only familiar with the regular Jelly, as it was produced for a very long time and is the one most often seen. The Flared Jelly that is featured in this post was introduced at the same time as the regular Jelly; however, it had a much shorter life span.
The Flared Jelly looks somewhat similar to the regular Jelly, with two major differences. The flared version is shorter in height, and wider in diameter – all due to the flaring of the dish. When you find one, you might just say “Oh, it’s just another Jelly piece”. It would be worth your while to look more closely at it (especially the shape and measurements), as the Flared Jelly is not an item you see in abundance. It is an open dish, without a cover. It showcases a shapely stem – which is fatter in the middle, with graceful curves.
