This "Berry Bowl" as the family called it has been in the family since the late 1800s. It is not particularly fine glass, but lovely just the same. Different kinds of fruit are embossed of the sides of the bowl and lid. The color has taken on a slight lavender/ pink cast, and several small bubbles can be seen throughout. I've never seen one like it in any shop, or online. Is anyone familiar with this piece? Thanks!

    Hi Scandinavian_pieces,
    Thank you for your interest in my mystery bowl. It does not have feet, and the inside diameter where the lid sits is 7".
