Production Dates: ???-1925
The Oval Pin Tray is a beautiful piece, and it’s considered a highly desirable item in the American pattern. Other types of small Trays were also made, such as handled and rectangular versions. A smaller and similar Oval Tray was also made; however, it was not a regularly-produced or cataloged item. The Oval Pin Tray featured in this post has measurements of 5¼” x 4″, making it the perfect size for a dressing table.
There are many production date discrepancies about this particular piece in the various published books on Fostoria American. It does appear that the Oval Pin Tray was not in production for a long time. Records are not complete on this item, and some catalogs don’t show a photo of it. With a short life span, any remaining pieces that survived should certainly be considered a treasure to behold.
