*** Update - with some help from Tallcakes, it's been determined that this is an Early American Glass bowl by Higbee. Still have not found the exact match to determine it's purpose. Anyone know what this was used for what it was called?
This piece is something I unpacked that my Mother had given me many years ago. I am pretty good at researching and always finding what I am looking for in glass. This one has me stumped. It is avery large, very HEAVY 10 1/2" high (with lid on) and 10 1/2" wide from outside rim to outside rim and 5 1/2" from inside "rim". I did find a patent from 1906 (Early American), for a Sanitare bowl on chataboutdg.com, that is VERY close to the pattern, and style of this bowl Added to pics above). The difference is the size of the inside rim and the fact that there are no glass inverts to hold large spoons. Can anyone help please? Possible Heisey original Colonial.
