Item Number: 477
Approximate Size: 3¾” 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 the bowl and the Mayonnaise Plate. With this particular item; however, the Mayonnaise, Plate & glass Ladle were sold as one unit. Item number 477 purchased all three pieces together.
Regarding the size of this item, which literally is three different pieces, is nearly impossible to be exact. The reason is that Fostoria Glass themselves first put the height measurement at 3″, then years later amended the measurement to be 3¾” (which is the size I am using). Since three different pieces were used to make up this one set, and each piece was finished by hand, you would be wise to expect size variations. The plate adds height, which I include in my 3¾” measurement.
Of the different mayonnaise dishes offered, I consider this 3-piece set to be the fanciest of them all. If you are interested in purchasing a similar piece, please click the following sponsored link for available Mayonnaise dishes on eBay.
