Vintage Fostoria Nappy, American pattern, candy dish, nut bowl, housewarming gift by Wantiquities

Fostoria glassware has been around since 1911…this nappy is in the American pattern, a very popular one.4

A "nappy" is a small bowl with shallow sides, can be round or heart or leaf shaped, may have one or two handles, a flat bottom and no rim. The term is from Middle English "nap" a cup or bowl to drink from. These were very popular in depression glass and elegant depression glass. Fostoria was one of the the premier elegant glass companies.

This cute dish would be great as a serving piece, for nuts, candy, etc. Or on a bureau, desk or vanity.

I have TWO available. His and hers? Hers and hers? Theirs??
