According to the accession records, a now-lost label on the base read "Blown by James Rutherford, circa 1810, South Jersey." A horn scoop (1952.203a) accompanied this bowl. Slightly larger footed bowls were used as centerpieces, fruit, and salad bowls, while smaller bowls might be used as waste or sugar bowls.
