chili vs. breakfast

one thing i am super picky about is labeling. when i list an item in my shop i try to have the most accurate name and description of it. usually i look in my reference books or research the piece online. i also try to include measurements so buyers know exactly what they are purchasing.

one of the biggest mistake i see on ebay, etsy and other online stores is mislabeled bowls. Fire King made a variety of bowls, in different shapes and colors. the most popular is the chili bowl (featured below). it's 5" in diameter and has a small "pedestal" on the bottom.

one of the more rare Fire King bowls is the breakfast bowl (featured below). it is about the same diameter as the chili bowl, but it does not have the pedestal, giving it a smooth profile. some of these bowls have designs on them, like this one which is for sale on ebay. the other big difference between these bowls is the price. chili bowls are about $15, whereas breakfast bowls are $60 or more depending on the color and condition.
