This is the Fostoria American Sundae dish. Fostoria made several dessert dishes; many were called a “Sherbet” of some type. The Sundae dish stands alone, and simply by looking at it, one can tell it was appropriately named. It just looks like a Sundae dish – waiting for a scoop or two of some delicious ice cream!
The Fostoria American Sundae holds approximately 6 ounces, and is about 3⅛” tall. It is one of the first pieces ever produced in the American 2056 line, and can be seen in Fostoria’s 1915 Catalog Supplement. The Sundae had a long production life as well, and was produced up until 1982.
This is a very versatile dish and can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways. While the Sundae dish is the perfect size for serving ice cream, it also is wonderful for other treats too. I like to put individual servings of fruit in them, especially when I want a pop of vibrant color showing through.
