This is the first time we've seen advertising in an Early American Pattern Glass Bowl! It is early pressed glass and dates from the 1900's. We have had a few pieces of Carnival Glass with advertising. The Bowl is small, it measures 4 & 1/2" by 3 & 1/4" and is 1 & 3/4" deep. A few rim edge inside flakes exist, but there are not any big chips. The Glass sparkles and is bright & clear. The message in the bottom is " The Syman Jewelry Co. 1132 Broadway Tacoma " A great Washington State advertising piece.
