Corning bowl with bumps
« on: August 04, 2008, 07:34:19 PM »
I'm presuming this bowl is made from Pyrex.  Its marked CORNING USA PH-7-S on the base.  It has hemispherical bumps which radiate out from the centre.

I'm curious as to know what it would be used for.  If its an ashtray, then it doesn't have rests.  I can't imagine it being used for cooking, so what is it?  There's lots of age related wear on the base.  I've done a search but haven't turned anything up like this.

Can anyone tell me anything more about it please?

TIA :)

You're gonna look a bit daft if Anne says it's 8" in diameter.  ;) ;D  What size is it Anne?  ^-^

6½" diam. x 1½" high.

May be for an upside-down-pudding?  Cherries etc. are placed in the indentations following baking?

Only joking >:D

OK, too big for a milk boil-spoiler and useless as an ashtray or food use... perhaps just a decorative dish.

Very peculiar!  Must have a definite purpose I suppose.  Are the bumps to spread the heat out more effectively?  For baking small puddings?...mysterious!

Roasting tray for smaller lumps. Hence the bumps to keep it clear of juices.

It's a Graperfuit squeezer for folk who don't like too much juice at one sitting.

This was my first thought.  Could be a mold of some sort, too.  I have Corning bakeware the same color.
