Hi. My name is Diana

.

The shape of the bowl definitely looks like Fostoria. It looks like one of their centerpiece bowls. As for the pattern, I'm not sure, but I'll be glad to see if I can find it.

Hi. It's definitely a Fostoria piece. I searched through a few of the other companies that were producing pieces like this just to make sure I wasn't missing something. Fostoria wasn't really one of the companies that sold their molds to other companies and I found this

.

That looks like the blank of your piece. It's called a 3 footed centerpiece bowl and Fostoria used it across quite a few patterns and colors. Your pattern is an etched floral pattern. Fostoria was one of the companies known for making slight variations and changing names and mixing and matching various parts of patterns with different blanks. tThat's why you'll often see the same pattern listed with different etch #'s. It's because they made slight tweaks the design but kept it as the same name. As a result there are a ton of patterns that are unidentified and plenty that are misidentified. I think your pattern is their Acanthus or at least a close variation of it. It would have been made during the 1930s.

.

Blue is a bit of a more uncommon color in these pieces. You'll find pink or clear much more easily.

.

It looks to be in excellent condition. Given that, your bowl is going to be worth about $100 to $125.

.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
