The Fostoria Glass Company produced three different types of Liners that could be used with the 2056 Ice Dish – the Fruit Cocktail Liner, the Crab Meat Liner, and the Tomato Juice Liner. These inserts (unlike the actual Ice Dish) are “blown” glassware; therefore, they are lighter, thinner, and more fragile than the pressed American pieces.
An interesting point to remember is that the assorted Liners are not officially from the American pattern, Line 2056. While the Liners were sold and used with the American pieces, they actually were assigned their own line number – 2451. Other Fostoria patterns, such as the Fairfax line, also used these same shaped Liners. The Liners that were used with the American pattern were made in clear crystal and were produced from 1940-1958.
The Tomato Juice Liner has a holding capacity of approximately 5 ounces. It is about 3⅝” in height and fits perfectly inside the chamber of the American Ice Dish. Ice is then placed between the Liner and the Ice Dish, keeping the tomato juice chilled throughout your meal.
