While sorting through some of our pressed glass, I came across this centerpiece type bowl and a bit of a mystery. My first thought was that my eyes were deceiving me, my second, that what appeared to be the letter F was simply a flaw in the mold. (just as the "anchor" above and to the right of the letter F is almost certainly an imperfectly formed acorn.) There is no design feature on the opposite side of the bowl however, that might lead one to surmise that the "letter" is an artifact of an obscured/re-cut design feature.
I do not know the age or the manufacturer of the bowl, nor do i know who or what the letter F may refer to.
Any identification or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
