Colored Glass, Coloured Glass, Mayonnaise Dish

Cambridge Helio Bowl (1)This weekend we went out to Orono where the annual antiques fair was held.  I picked up a number of pieces including this pretty opaque purple (Cambridge called it Helio) dish.  I was very surprised to find my first piece of Helio in this little Ontario town.  I asked the vendor if she recalled where she had found it, but she did not.

I have only seen Helio online.  I gather that there are variations in the tone of purple.  This is a fairly dark piece.  I read in the reference book – Colors in Cambridge Glass II – that Helio was introduced in January 1923 and was likely only produced for no more than two years.

I believe this set to be the mayonnaise, with ladle, from line #169.
