Fostoria | American | Lemon DishThe Fostoria American Lemon and Cover is another pioneering piece in the American pattern.  We know that it was introduced in 1915, based on the information in Fostoria’s 1915 Catalog Supplement.  It was then produced for many years thereafter, taking a brief hiatus in the mid-1940’s, before being reinstated in 1947.  Whether used for its original purpose or not, it is a versatile and practical serving piece.

The Lemon and Cover has an approximate height of 3½”, with a diameter of 5½” (this measurement can vary slightly).  The Cover does not have a serrated edge; instead, the top edge is smooth – with two indentations – approximately 180 degrees apart from each other.  In contrast, the actual Lemon Dish has two notches on the top edge – making for a perfect and precise fit with the Cover.

The Lemon and Cover could also be used for a multitude of other purposes – such as a candy, confection and/or relish dish.  As an eBay Partner, I may be compensated if you make a purchase on eBay.  The following link shows available Lemon Dishes on eBay.
