This fluted pedestal bowl is 4-5/8 inches across and is 6.5 inches tall. The bowl is made of heavy pressed glass. It is a beautiful colonial blue color. The pattern features a pinwheel or buzz saw with a hobstars and file. There is a pinwheel pattern on the base as well.
This is the McKee Aztec pattern; however, Mckee never made the pattern in this color. Kemple reproduced several of the McKee Tec patterns in clear and later in colors. Kemple closed in 1970 when Mr. Kemple died. Wheaton Glass purchased the molds used by Kemple. L. E. Smith and L. G. Wright also reproduced McKee patterns.
Whether the piece was made by Kemple, Wheaton, Smith, Wright, or one of the other manufacturers who made the Aztec pattern, this is a really nice bowl in a beautiful color. It has no chips or cracks.
