Description:  We originally thought the first boat shaped bulb tray we saw was unique until we found a second one and heard of two others. One of these others is of a smaller size and is shown on the right here. They are not illustrated in either Jane Wilson’s or Herbert Schiffer’s books. Their most likely use was as bulb trays because of their depth. These trays did not have covers, there are no inset rims. The dimensions of those pictured are:  5 3/4″ wide x 10″ long x 2 1/2″ deep and 5 1/4″ x 8 1/4 x 2 3/8″. They weigh: 1 lb.  7 oz. and 1 lb. 2 oz. They are very nicely decorated, they have 4 flowers on the outside and the bottoms are unglazed. They all have 2 small rim scallops on each side of the dishes. The rims are 5/8″ wide.
