Description

This body style features pleated corners on lids of holloware pieces such as covered vegetables which are repeated on the body and on the foot.  Vertical handles on covered vegetables are an interesting twist to what is often seen.  It is named Fleur-de-lys to acknowledge the embossing at the finial, reminiscent of French chilvaric emblems;  this the French spelling of this royal symbol.  Registered in 1891.
