Fostoria | American | Spun Punch BowlPut simply, the Fostoria American Spun Punch Bowl is different.  There were two 14″ punch bowls produced in the American line, and the spun version was made from 1979-1980.  I believe it was an experiment that ended in unsuccessful results for Fostoria Glass; therefore, it was produced in very limited quantities and was never officially presented in their catalogs.

When compared to other punch bowls in the line, the Spun Punch Bowl looks more like an enormous bowl.  The design is completely different, and this is because it was made by a “spinning” process.  The Spun Punch Bowl is shorter than it’s sibling, the 14″ Punch Bowl.  Due to the spinning process, this is a piece that will not have any mould seams.

Unfortunately, the production of spun punch bowls resulted in an undesirable outcome – some pieces being very thick, while others were very thin.  In the end, the Spun Punch Bowl had a short life.  Being sold primarily in select outlet stores, it is the rarest punch bowl in the American line.
