Here is one pretty vintage Fire King Gay Fad Banded Glass Bowl for your consideration.

This hand painted milk glass bowl features fruits that I believe are stylized grapes, cherries, peaches and pears with some having stems and leaves.

The Gay Fad hand painted motif took off in and around the 1950's and is a sweet reminder of the kitchens of yesterday.

This banded bowl measures about 6 inches across from rim edge to rim edge and is about 3 inches tall. All measurements are approximate.

On the bottom it is embossed

Display as is or add some fresh fruit for a pop of color.

No box
No bad smells or odors.

There are a some white specks within the glass from when it was made.
On the base there is some shelf wear from age and storage.
Some stacking marks on the outside as this is the smallest of the nesting bowls.

There is some stacking and utensil marks on the inside of the bowl that I can feel and see.

On the inside of the bowl towards the bottom, I can feel some roughness (almost a ring of roughness) which may be from when another smaller bowl sat inside this one and caused rub and scratches.

On the inside of the bowl, there is some extra glass which juts out and is a factory issue.
On the outside of the bowl, there are a few darker spots and flecks that appear to be from manufacturing.

Some rub or paint loss to the pattern.

There are straw marks and bubble pops and bubble bursts to note.

As with most Fire King glass, the usual inclusions like straw marks, swirls of color, white spots and mold seams and mold marks are present.

Gently hand wash this and do not put into a dishwasher as it will remove the hand painted pattern.

If you have questions, please feel free to convo me.
