This is the Fostoria American Footed Bowl – 10″. This particular bowl can also be used as a salad bowl. It fits nicely on the 14″ Torte Plate that was used in Fostoria’s 3-piece Salad Set.
Fostoria produced many bowls in the American pattern. Some of the pieces were also called “nappy” dishes. A nappy is usually a round dish, with a flat bottom and sloping sides, and used primarily for serving food. A variety of Fostoria’s bowls and/or nappies were either footed, shallow, high, deep, flared, handled, etc. As I mentioned, many Fostoria bowls were made – and they all had different names and/or usages.
American Whitehall also made a similar bowl, which they called a “Salad/Fruit Bowl”. They did not produce nearly as many bowl designs as Fostoria did; however, their Salad/Fruit Bowl is strikingly similar to the Fostoria 10-Inch Footed Bowl.
