This is the scalloped rim footed cupped bowl in the Mt Pleasant pattern by L.E. Smith. Mt Pleasant is also called Double Shield. It was made from 1925-1934, which makes it authentic depression glass. The bowl is black amethyst glass. It is 7 1/4" wide and 3 3/4" tall. Replacements calls this a 7" bowl and Gene Florence in his Depression Glass book calls it an 8" bowl. It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.
