I have found several sizes of bowls, both clear and green, with these convex, or rounded ribs. In fact, I have one listed right now in green. But I’ve never found out a thing about them – no idea of pattern name or lid manufacturer.

I consider the green to be much harder to find than the clear, but as far as beauty goes, the clear has it, partly because it allows you to see what’s inside. And in the case of this particular flip, what used to be inside was likely beautiful crushed fruit (Strawberries! Blueberries! Pineapple!) in an ice cream parlor.

The giveaway is the handle that’s welded to the lid on the inside. That allowed the spoon to be safely tucked inside the bowl with its handle out of reach of the contents.

For its size, which is 6 5/8” in diameter by 4 ¼” high, not including the knob, the bowl is very heavy, weighing 2 ½ pounds! Considering its age, which I would date to the end of the 19th century-early 20th century, it is fantastic condition. The lid, as you can see from the photos, detaches, and it is in great shape with just a few small areas of corrosion or plating loss on it. It has the all over scratches from cleaning that all of these bowls acquired, but it still has a lot of nice sheen.

There are no cracks on chips on the glass, just some expected scratches, though the glass is still shiny and gorgeous.
