This fabulous piece of 1920s era history was produced by Fry glass and is an oval casserole or baking dish, in it's metal and chrome serving stand. This piece comes without a lid but is still an excellent example to add to a collection.
Fry Glass made cut glass at the end of the victorian era but found that interest was declining, so in the mid 1910s they began producing more domestic glass. The Foval name came from the first letters of the phrase Fry OVen Art Line.
This casserole dish is marked on the base "Fry Ovenglass 1932-9 PAT.5-8-17 PAT. 5-27-19" below this is a number 27 in a circle.
The 1932-9 in the mark refers to the shape number, not the years of production.
The glass portion of this dish measures 9 1/2" long and 3 5/8" in height.
In fair condition the glass does have wear from age and use, there are two very small nicks on the inner rim but no major chips or cracks. The chrome stand has some age to it also and shows signs of wear and light corosion. This set comes with a pair of tongs also. I do not know if they are original to the set but I acquired them together so I will keep them together.
