Fostoria American Handled Nappy - Flared

Handled Nappy, Flared


Item Number:  HN-05
Size:  5½″
Production Dates:  1915-1944

Fostoria Glass made quite a few different nappy dishes in their 2056 line.  Several were among the very first American items to be showcased in 1915.  The Handled Nappy (Flared) was one of those pioneering pieces.  By definition, a “nappy” is simply a shallow open serving dish (or small bowl), with no rim.  You can find them with a handle, with two handles, or even without a handle.  Therefore, there are many styles of nappy dishes.  The American pattern produced regular, flared, handled, and even 3-cornered nappy bowls.

One good thing about the handled nappy dishes is that they were unique in design.  Any time a piece of glass is made with a handle, the production process is a bit more complicated.  Therefore, you will not have to worry about any Look-Alikes (i.e. Whitehall, Jeannette Glass, etc.) when it comes to the American handled nappy dishes.

Of the four different handled nappies that were produced in the American pattern, it is the flared Handled Nappy that is the most elusive.  The other nappy dishes were produced almost twice as long as the flared version.  As an eBay Partner, I may be compensated if you make a purchase on eBay.  The following link shows available Handled Flared Nappies on eBay.
