With its opalescent wide pointed ribs, unusual handkerchief shaping, and zigzag rim, this Fostoria Heirloom 7 inch blue glass bowl is a showstopper in a quality piece of American Art Glass. Fostoria advertised Heirloom as "Fine Giftware with Fashion Flare," and made it like handmade glass from the early years with modern unique coloring. This bowl is in Fostoria's gorgeous opalescent ice blue color. The rim of this bowl is finished with crystal clear glass giving it a frozen appearance.
This smaller bowl is Heirloom piece #2183/168 of the line, and measures 7 inches at its widest diameter and 4-7/8 inches tall. It has a 3-1/8 inch diameter ground and polished foot.
This pattern was made by Fostoria from 1959 to 1970. There is no mark, as these pieces usually had a paper label. There is no damage to this stunning piece.
