The 3-Toed Bon Bon is another beautiful piece in the Fostoria American pattern. The 3-Toed Bon Bon is approximately 7″ across. Still relatively easy to find in the aftermarket, this piece was produced up until about 1983. This dish has a variety of usages – limited only by your imagination. There is also a Look-Alike piece in the American Whitehall pattern; however, there are differences between the two.
While a Bon-Bon is typically a sweet candy or confection dish, other stand-alone appetizers could also be served on this beautiful piece of crystal. I often use the 3-Toed Bon Bon when planning a Spring or Easter-themed tablescape. They make perfect little servers for petite Malted Milk Eggs. Resting on some Easter grass, the pastel-colored eggs make a nice presentation and look delightful.

Whitehall also made a similar piece, and it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish between the two.
