Rose bowls for the collector

These small decorated bowls were popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

They were produced in various types of glass like satin, spatter, spangle, silver overlay, and much, much more.  One color that is seen is cranberry, which is the color on this fantastic example made by Fenton.

They are usually spherical with an incurved, crimped rim; but they can also show up egg shaped or even ovid.  There is also a ton of manufacturers that made rose bowls as well, and Fenton has quite a few examples themselves.

You can see this fantastic Fenton rose bowl in my Etsy shop here.  Wouldn’t one of these make a great gift?
