Offered here is Anchor Hocking's Oyster and Pearl Depression Glass in a pink Heart-Shaped One-Handled Bowl. Oyster and Pearl is a simple and pretty design of long double rays, each with four small beads at the base, stretching upward like arms along the sides of the dish. The rays form tulip-shaped panels around the sides of the dish, and together the rays and panels form a scalloped edge like an array of oyster shells. This little heart-shaped nappy has ten panels, one of which dips outward to form the tip of the heart, with the applied handle in the panel directly opposite. The center bottom is rayed like the spokes of a wheel with a circle of beads in the center. Commonly called a nappy, this little bowl is perfect for sauces, candies, or other small treats!
This small dish measures 6-1/4 inches from handle to tip, 5-inches wide, and 1-5/8 inches deep.
Made by Anchor Hocking between 1938 and 1940, there is no mark.
As in most vintage pieces, there are normal, small surface scratches, including two pinhead-sized scuff marks on the outside of one panel. Other than the expected flaws characteristic of Depression Era Glass, such as bubbles, or other irregularities, there is no damage.
This pretty bowl will add a perfect touch of romance to the table for a wedding or shower, or even for Valentine's Day!
