Fostoria's American glassware pattern is an old one. first produced in 1917. Although it is glass and not crystal the faceted surface gives off a wonderful rich gleam, but unlike crystal it is sturdy enough for everyday use.
I have been a fan of this pattern for a long time, but never got around to acquiring any...always thinking, maybe some day. Meanwhile it has become harder and harder to find.
So when I decided to slowly replace my everyday glasses with it you can imagine how excited I was when my wonderful brother gifted me with these:
six stemmed sherbet glasses and six footed tumblers!
Aren't the pretty? They look great in the kitchen cabinets.
Hopefully, I will eventually be able to get the juice glasses and the tall tumblers. It is fun to have a new collection under way and...
...not only are they pretty, but useful as well. I guess I am a real push-over for anything shiny. How about you?
Thank you for visiting I hope you have a wonderful day.
