Vintage 1960s Fire King Small Glass Bowls - Meadow Green Pattern circa 1968-1976
Meadow Green. That's the pattern name of these two small Fire King glass bowls. Even though it's got a spring and summer name, this pattern to us always seemed to offer year-round appeal since the pattern contains both flowers and a snowflake-like design.
Made by Anchor Hocking for their dependable and beloved Fire King line, the Meadow Green pattern was manufactured from 1968-1976 and contained popular colors of the decade - lime green, spring green, lemon yellow, and black. Available on all sorts of ovenware dishes, this set of two bowls is a more unusual, harder-to-find size. Bigger than a custard cup but smaller than a mixing bowl, some consider these two to be cereal bowls, but really they offer a bevy of uses. Everything from soup to nuts, prep bowls to mini casseroles, pet food bowls to display holders these two are that handy, accommodating size that always makes you wonder how you ever lived without them.
Deemed the "over-built ovenware," Anchor Hoking's Fire King line was built to last. They were so confident in its ability, Anchor Hocking even offered money-back guarantees or replacements should a dish meet its ultimate demise even after years of use.
Easy, effortless, and helpful in the kitchen, the only thing Fire King wasn't really great at was tolerating life in the dishwasher as it clouded the patina and eventually rubbed off the imagery. So when you find a vintage piece of Fire King in such great and shiny shape like these two are, it's a sign that they were well-cared for throughout their long life.
