I think it is important to list the Wedding Bowl (without a cover) as a separate item in the American 2056 line. The reason for that is because it was, indeed, a piece with its own identification number. This Wedding Bowl is Item #163, and the Wedding Bowl & Cover is Item #162. Many collectors think that when they come across a Wedding Bowl without a cover that it is not complete. That simply is not true. Fostoria Glass offered the Wedding Bowl two ways – with, or without a cover. Therefore, should you find this beautiful piece without a cover, know that it could have very well been bought in just that configuration. Not everyone wanted a cover for this bowl.
It is my belief that these Wedding Bowls are some of the finest, and most beautiful, of all the pieces in the Fostoria American line. The history of wedding bowls goes back many years – over a century ago. They were cherished, and often used on a daily basis. When these items were being produced, they were very popular wedding gifts. Even though times and customs have changed drastically over the years, I can’t imagine any bride-to-be (even in today’s world) not falling in love with one of these exquisite and stunning Wedding Bowls.
