In the 1920s, the Pairpoint Corporation made a variety of tableware, both colored and colorless, much of it with engraved and/or cut decoration. This covered bowl, in a color the company marketed as “Rosaria,” is typical of that period. It was a popular color and design, and was in production through the 1930s, until the company closed. Other colors from the period were "Auroria" (an amber color), deep red, cobalt blue, and both light and dark green. Many of the colored glasses were combined with colorless and then engraved or cut.
