Fostoria American Cheese and CrackerFostoria Glass Company produced an item in their American line that was called the “Cheese and Cracker”.  It consisted of two individual pieces – the Footed Cheese, and the Cracker Plate. When these pieces were produced, you could either buy the two-piece set together – or you could buy the Footed Cheese and/or the Cracker Plate independently of each other.

The top of the Footed Cheese is flat, with edges that curve up gracefully.  It is footed, supported by a shapely stem.  While this piece was made to fit on top of the Cracker Plate, it can also be used independently.

The Fostoria American Cracker Plate has a raised retainer ring in the center to accommodate the Footed Cheese.  The retainer ring helps to hold the Footed Cheese in place so that it does not slip around on the plate.  Since the Footed Cheese was also sold separately, you can really use it anywhere – and with anything.
