    This Indiana Glass Company bowl is known as both a scalloped bowl and as a lotus petal bowl. It measures 11" in diameter and 4-3/4" high and has 12 petals. It is often confused with the very similar Blenko Art Glass scalloped bowl, which is also known as a lotus petal bowl by collectors. Blenko still makes their bowl and it is described as a scalloped bowl on their web site. The Blenko bowl has 14 petals. Blenko also makes a smaller set of bowls with fewer petals as did Indiana Glass Company. I sometimes see bowls of this size with an odd number of petals, not 12 or 14, and suspect that Blenko's bowls may have been a bit more diverse, i.e., more petals, but I have never seen a Blenko bowl with 12 petals. I am also posting a Blenko bowl for comparison. For years I had what I thought was my Indiana Glass bowl out and my Blenko bowl stored, since the Blenko bowl is a bit pricier, but took a second look today and realized that I had the Blenko bowl out and the Indiana Glass bowl tucked away!

      Indiana Glass did have a Lotus Blossom compote from the 1980s but the petals are different. This is the Luau salad bowl from the Luau Salad Set shown in 1978-80 catalogs. There was also a Petal Salad Set with a different petal design.
