U.S. Glass Bowls

US Glass made a large number of bowls, many of which are in the various lines (e.g., #310, #314, & #8076-open work) that are discussed more completely on other pages. US Glass made many bowls, especially the wide based bowls with low rims and ground bases (i.e., stuck up). Most of these low bowls have optic panels. Ground bases and panels usually means U.S. Glass! Many other bowls had ground bases or normal snap bases. On this page, these wide footed and non-patterned bowls are presented. Be sure to check the pages with the #310, #314, unidentified rays, and open work pieces for more extensive examples.

US Glass often used the term "low footed comport" to refer to pieces that other compaines called low footed bowls. In their catalog pages, they usually used the term "comport" rather than compote. See the Comport Page.
