The price has increased for this set since 3 additional pieces have been added. These beautifully etched and blown crystal glasses were made by Fostoria between 1922-1929. The pattern is Victory, a deep etch. A deep etch produces a white etch. This is Fostoria's stem 766. There are 10 in the set. Two have a tiny nick on the rim. The glasses are 6.75 inches tall and 3.5 inches across.
The pattern features a a draped swag of garlands hanging from a leaf and swag design, similar to a fluer de lis. The etch on the glasses is a "deep etch" (cut deep into the glass) which results in a white etch set against a clear narrow optic bowl resting on a thin straight stem. The base is flat. Each of the glasses holds about 7.5 ounces.
Two of the 10 glasses have a tiny rim nick. Otherwise the glasses are in excellent vintage condition. The glasses are sparkling and clear and have been gently used.
Fostoria had its beginnings in Forstoria Ohio in 1887. The company moved to Moundsvill West Virginia where it fluorished and produced outstanding glassware for almost a hundred years. Fostoria's glass was hand made rather than machine made. Handmade glass was a labor intensive process involving numerous workers to produce one piece of glass. The glass was handled by: gatherers, blowers, pressers, foot-casters, and finally finish workers who put the finishing touches on each piece.
These glasses are elegant, stately, and stunning. The pattern was produced less than10 years, a very short time for a Fostoria product. The thin vertical optics in the glass bowl set this pattern apart from many others.
Shipping costs are estimated until the final packing for shipment. If costs are less than the estimated amount, a refund will be issued for over pament.
