These are my new treasures! I picked them up at the antique shop I visited a few days ago. They were on sale for 1/2 off and only cost me $12.50 for all three of them! What a deal! I already had one like the smallest one (I think, I’ll have to measure mine later). The smallest one of this set is 7″ in diameter and 3 and 3/8″ deep. The middle-sized one is 7 and 7/8″ in diameter and 4″ deep. The largest one is 8 and 1/2″ in diameter and 4 and 1/2″ deep. On the bottom, it says Oven Ware Made in U.S.A Fire King. I tried to take a photo of it, but the bottom is white and the writing is in white and it just showed as a white blob.
I got my original bowl from my step-grandma Ruby. She was the only grandma I remember. Both of my blood grandma’s died while my parents were still young children. When Grandma Ruby died, I got the bowl. It was something to remember her by. We all used it often. My son broke it. I bought a replacement on eBay. I know, logically, that it’s not the same bowl that I got from my grandmomma, but I still think of her when I use it, so it’s just fine. It’s grandmomma’s bowl to me. When I saw the set of nesting bowls, I was really surprised. I didn’t know there was a set. I thought it had been a giveaway thing from the grocery store for buying oatmeal. I guess they still could have been. The small one that I got as part of the set doesn’t feel as heavy as I remember my eBay bowl feeling. It will be interesting to see if that is true also.
Do you have anything like this to remember past loved ones by?
