Hazel Atlas glass apple pattern was made between the 1940s and 1950s in
several platonite colors. The master bowl
shown to the right measures about 10” wide and has an apple blossom
impressed on the bottom. The Apple bowls do not have the standard Hazel
Atlas glass mark (H over A), however, no other company produced these,
so therefore it is easily identified as Hazel Atlas. This is the master
bowl and was complemented by smaller bowls in the pattern colors. A
green set would have green, gray, chartreuse and red smaller bowls.
This snack set was usually boxed with 6 smaller bowls and included a
large plastic serving spoon and fork. The Value of the master bowl is
around $12 with the apple blossom.
The Apple Bowl sets were used for serving salads and deserts at the
dinner table. My sister-in-law remarked how her mother would use the
smaller bowls as cereal bowls for her and her brother. Today the Master
Bowl can be hung on the kitchen wall with the apple blossom showing, as
a nice 1950s decoration.
Some of the master bowls do not bear the apple blossom impression and
they generally sell for $5 or $6. The smaller berry
bowls measuring about 5” wide sell in the $3-$5 range. A complete boxed
set is usually about $20-$25. Hazel Atlas sold these primarily through
discount stores in the USA and Canada. Although not considered
Depression glass, they were part of the colorful kitchen glass movement
of the late 1940s and 50s. Learn more about Hazel Atlas Glass
