The smaller cups/mugs are the heavier restaurantware and remind me of old time diners.
I picked up this little bowl somewhere. It is intended to travel out to British Columbia when I go visit my daughter. I bought her a piece of Mckee awhile back and thought she would like this little bowl.
I don’t know anything about jadeite pieces. I do know that there are alot of reproductions on the market. I have no reference texts to validate any pieces.
It is marked with Fire King’s mid to late 1950s mark, according to this ebay article – Buying Fire King Jeannette Jadite Jadeite. I don’t know if marks have been reproduced or not. So…its origin remains unknown.
In any event, I paid less than $5.00 for this little bowl, my daughter will love it regardless, so it doesn’t really matter.
