most say soup bowl, so I will say salad bowl.

Aha !!
So, I was right !
It is a two-handled soup sipper for serious sycophants of soup.....but not the Civil War.

I LOVE this game. I learn something new each time.

I believe it's a cream soup bowl. From the flower decoration and the gold rim treatment, it could be from Homer Laughlin.

It's an earlier 20th C. bouillon bowl. Bouillon is eaten with a bouillon spoon. The bowl would have had an underplate that matched and was likely from an entire set of porcelain that all matched.

This is a cream soup bowl. Usually had a matching saucer.

It's a "finger bowl" to be filled half way with water for finger tips to be genty dipped, then dried.
