Amber pressed glass was very popular years ago. You can still find it today in wayward China cabinets or spare bedrooms. I like to imagine this one sitting out on the kitchen counter filled with seasonal fruit!

This large dish is in mint condition. There is not a chip or crack (due to human use) to be found. There are some interesting swirl marks on the bottom and what look to be swelling or fractured bubbling on the inside, all of which are a result of the quick pour -- quick cool process by which most mass produced pressed glass was made.

It is smoky amber brown in color with a textured inside giving it the optic dot bubble pattern. The outside is smooth. The bottom bears no names or marks. The fruit in the picture is for size reference only and is not sold as part of the listing.

This bowl was made by the Continental Can Co, CCC, which originally made metal containers for WWII but then turned to glass production after buying the Hazel Atlas company in 1956. This bowl does not bear the CCC mark on the bottom which may mean a Hazel Atlas mold was used in production.

Bowl is about 9 inches (23 cm) wide by 3 inches (8 cm) tall. All packaged up, it weighs almost 3 pounds. This is a heavy, solid bowl.

Own a little piece of depression glass history!

All of my China and glassware has been washed in the sink, by hand, with soapy water. I do not use a commercial dishwashing machine. Sometimes elbow grease is necessary to remove years and layers of grime. Dishwashers cannot do that. Any chips or cracks are noted in the listings.
