This light cranberry colored bowl is from a larger set of glassware that would have included stemware and decanters. This particular piece appears to be a berry bowl or a sauce dish. Often berry bowls were part of a set that included a larger bowl from which to serve. Adelicia’s great-grandson remembers this set from growing up in Adelicia’s daughter’s house in Washington D. C.. He notes that these pieces were part of a larger set of glassware that included service for twenty-four. [Kaiser]
