When shopping at your favorite flea market, antique mall or thrift store, it will not take long for you to run across a serving piece. They come in all shapes like platters, punch bowls or even a cup. Not only that, there are a wide variety of materials that they are made of.
Here are a few of the glassware pieces you might run across when you are out and about:
Berry set—this consists of a large bowl with matching smaller bowls. They are used for serving items like fruit and some desserts.
Salt, saltcellar—this is a small bowl used at the table to hold salt. This type of container is also called a “master salt”.
Celery vase—this is a tall and narrow vase that is used on the table to hold celery.
Compote—this is a dish that usually comes with a stem and a base that is used for serving compote (a fruit that is cooked in syrup). There is a smaller dish that has a similar form used for a serving for one person.
This is only a small handful of what you will run across. What types of serving pieces have you run across?
