    This 9 1/2" x 5" Fern dish. This one is the best I have seen anywhere. The pattern and maker are unknown at the moment.
    Now, I have never seen a fern dish with a cut rim. You always see ferner with a flat rim so a metal liner could fit into the dish.
    Two experts in American cut glass, gave the same answer as to what this piece is, a fern dish and not a footed bowl like I thought.
    The dish has three feet as all fern dishes do.. An added bounce to this piece are stars cut on the bottom of the feet. I have never seen a decorated foot.

      "Round, square and oval fern bowls equipped with metal liners designed to hold live ferns were common household containers during Pteridomania or fern madness, the popular fern-hunting hobby that began in England during the 1830s and reached America by the 1860s where it lasted until World War I."
