The Fostoria Glass Company produced three different types of supports for their American Punch Bowls. The punch bowl stands that were introduced first were the Low Foots. They debuted in the original Fostoria American catalog of 1915. The Low Foot for the 18″ Punch Bowl was made from 1915-1980. Needless to say, it was a very popular item.
The Low Foot featured in this post was specifically made for the 18″ Punch Bowl. It is approximately 4⅝” tall, and about 11″ in diameter. The 11″ Low Foot has five rows of cubes in its design. This is an important fact to remember, especially when comparing it to the smaller Low Foot – which displays only fours rows of cubes.
Please don’t confuse the Low Foot or the High Foot with the Fostoria American Centerpieces. While they do look strikingly similar in shape and size, there is one distinguishing factor between them. The true supports for the punch bowls (the Low Foot and/or the High Foot) will not have a rayed center in their glass base. In other words, the glass base that the punch bowl actually sits on will be void of any design. The same-sized Centerpiece; however, will have a rayed center in their glass base.
