Do you like pink depression glass but aren’t sure how to use it? The serving bowl featured this week for Pink Saturday makes that decision easy. This is the serving bowl in American Sweetheart pink depression glass from MacBeth Evans.
More people enjoy American Sweetheart than almost any other depression glass pattern – it is certainly in the top 5 or 6 patterns. The design is raised on the exterior, leaving the inside of the bowl smooth. That makes it easier to clean. I don’t know how MacBeth Evans did it, but their glass always looks delicate although MacBeth Evans glass is sturdy despite being thin.
This bowl is called a large fruit bowl or large berry bowl in most reference books and you and I would call it a round serving bowl. It is a good size for salad or a big bowl of sliced berries and melons these hot summer days.
Serving bowls are among the easiest vintage glass pieces to enjoy. They are nicely sized and are big enough to look good on a shelf. Then all you need to do is wash, fill with fruit or salad, to make anything you serve look enticing. Your friends will be intrigued with your dish selection and it will be so pretty and pink!
