- Description: This mayonnaise bowl by Heisey is so unusual, definitely a conversation starter on your table. This is a pressed glass bowl in their Empress pattern, the color called Moongleam, is a very nice green. The sides have small raised dots reminds us of the Oyster and Pearl pattern by Anchor Hocking. The rim has a very nice scroll design. It is a footed piece with three “toes” shaped like Dolphin / fish heads. This dish is perfect as a candy/nut dish, as a sugar bowl, for potpourri. We could even see it in a coastal home in the bathroom for soaps or as table top decor or any number of uses on the dinning table or buffet as servingware and of course, as originally designed, for serving mayonnaise.

- Condition: Vintage- Used. Excellent condition. There are no cracks or chips, there are some very light scratches all over but we believe this is normal from years of use. Also one of the feet is a bit worn on the bottom from use, but that is also normal wear, hardly noticeable, we tried to get a picture of it not sure if you’ll be able to see it. There is no cloudiness on this piece. (PLEASE SEE PICTURES). Please remember these are VINTAGE and ANTIQUE items, they are NOT new. Every effort has been made to show any scratches, wear and tear and imperfections. Refunds will not be given unless there’s gross misrepresentation of condition.

A. H. Heisey was founded by Augustus H. Heisey, a German immigrant, in 1896 in Newark, Ohio. Augustus had worked for Ripley and Company, a glass manufacturer, and was also a trained glass blower. As he gained experience, he decided to build his own glass factory. A. H. Heisey died in 1922, then his son, Wilson Heisey, took on the role of leading the company. When Wilson died, in 1942, T. Clarence Heisey became the company’s new president. During it’s most prosperous time, the company employed almost seven hundred people. The company closed in December 1957 and sold all their assets to the Imperial Glass Company. They continued to produce some of Heisey’s items until 1984 when they went bankrupt.
