This stunning pale amethyst art glass bowl was produced by Fostoria as part of their Decorator Collection line which was made between 1964 and 1970. The technical name for the piece is a Basket, but I'd be more inclined to call it a stemmed bowl or a compote.
It is a lovely oval shaped bowl which would make a fantastic centerpiece or fruit bowl for your dining table or buffet. It is made from an octagonal form and the base and stem reflect this 8 sided shape.
The basket or bowl measures 5 3/4" tall and 9" long. It is in excellent condition with no chips, nicks or cracks no signs of wear from age or use except a little shelf wear on the base. It would make a perfect addition to any home or collection.
