Hazel Atlas called their beautiful Cobalt Blue, Ritz Blue, and here it is in the increasingly hard to find CrissCross pattern Depression Glass Mixing Bowl. As the name implies, a pattern of vertical and horizontal ribs intersect each other around the sides of the bowl. Each intersection is marked with a smooth, raised square within a square. The raised circular foot has four corners.
This bowl measures 8-3/4 inches in diameter, and about 4-1/8 inches deep.
This bowl was manufactured by Hazel-Atlas during the 1930s. There is no mark.
Made for use, this bowl has a 2/8-inch shallow chip on the corner of one foot, and a much tinier nick on the corner of another foot. Neither of these impact the stability of the bowl. There is also a pinhead-sized old, smooth nick in one of the ribs, and there are surface scratches consistent with normal use.
