    They were sherbets usually from counter stores where it was necessary to wash in the glass insides but not the metal holders.

    Yes, sherbets or dessert dishes - but the sterling ones were NOT for regular counter service!

    I have about 3 dozen of them in sterling, with several different types of glass liners, that were passed down in my family. I used to use them for dinner parties all the time, but, alas, those days are long behind me...

    Several of the high end stores in NYC used the sterling bases. I have sold several in the past.
