    Maybe the divided dish is for nuts, candies for the bridge table?

    This collection of Atomic Starburst for sale on eBay doesn't appear to have those small bowls. They are an interesting enigma.

    Actually it does. They are in the dead center. The seller calls them dessert/side/sauce bowls. The odd thing about that collection is that it doesn't have any cereal bowls.

    Replacements also says it's a dessert/side/sauce bowl. And the three part dish is a relish tray.

    ah, your little bowl looked smaller and more curved. I can see how those evolved from the Victorian "berry bowls" which were of similar size. Berry bowls came in a set of 6 or 8 with a larger bowls as the serving bowl.

    I will sleep better tonight knowing that we weren't misusing them. Now if anyone mocks us for using finger bowls for dessert bowls I can call them ignorant boobs on facebook.

    Yes, I agree. The divided bowl is for olives, pickles, relish, whatever you want on the table. I had a crystal one.

    But your son will move out one day and take this with him. I haven't felt the need for a Vitamix machine myself, but they are popular, and expensive. It is a nice gift.

    Those are the ones I own! My Mum used to serve us coddled eggs with toasted 'soldiers' when we were 'Poorly'. God knows why I put them on my wedding list!
