Item Number: 478
Approximate Size: 5¼” D – 3⅜” H
Production Dates: 1934-1973
The American 2056 pattern offered different types of mayonnaise dishes. Consumers had a choice of buying most of the mayonnaise components by themselves – such as just this dish, or the Mayonnaise Plate. A more complete mayonnaise set (Item 477) can be found – which includes the Mayonnaise, Plate & Ladle.
It is also worth noting that I have seen slight size and shape variations on this item. The main difference has been seen in the flaring of the top edges. Since they were finished by hand, the final shape was determined by the craftsman. When more flaring is applied, the item will have a bigger diameter and probably be slightly smaller.
