The McKee Glass Company was located in Pittsburgh, Pa., and the Pittsburgh area. Three of the following flips are impressed on the bottom with the McK monogram within a circle, as shown below. Dimensions are 6" x 3" for the Chalaine Blue, Jadite Green and Seville Yellow bowls. The lids are made from heavy aluminum.

There is the possibility that what I'm referring to as Seville Yellow is actually McKee's Custard. I do not know glassware and have a hard time trying to tell the different between what is called Light Seville Yellow and Custard. If anyone can help me out, I would appreciate it! The Jadite and Chalaine have been shown as Salts in Gene Florence's "Kitchen Glassware of the Depression Years." I have never thought of flips as holding salt, but if you look at the ugly floral decal that remains on the yellow flip, you'll see the fragment of the word "salt." I stand somewhat corrected.

This magnificent bowl (below) is McKee's Stars and Stripes pattern, made from around 1915 into the 1930s as a Crushed Fruit Bowl. It is 8" wide and 4 1/2" high. Note the ladle rest in the second photo.

This beautiful bowl is McKee's Toltec pattern. It is 5 3/4" wide by 3 3/4" high. It has two hinges, set back from the center of the lid, which is unmarked. (Thanks to Donnah for the ID.)

This bowl (below) is McKee's Aztec pattern, missing its flip lid. The photo was contributed by Fiona ni'Giollarua. You can tell it was intended to have a lid based on the straight (rimless) rim.
