Here is an elegant Fostoria glass Baroque Compote in the elusive Italian Lace Etch. Originally named Italian Lace, the name was later changed to Gold Lace sometime in the 1940s. At that time the etch was done in a less costly manner resulting in a much shallower design. Photographed on black to show the pattern better, the etch on this clear glass compote almost feels like a cutting.

Here on the Baroque blank #2496, this lesser known and infrequently seen pattern is a deeply etched all over floral chintz design featuring poinsettia blossoms and smaller flowers. The pattern indeed resembles your grandmother's best lace tablecloth. The distinctive Baroque blank features a sweeping curled stem with pointed fronds. The bowl has a scalloped edge, and both the rim of the bowl and the circular foot are edged in gold.

The measurements of this elegant compote are 4-1/2 inches tall and 5-1/2 inches in diameter. The circular foot is 3-7/8 inches in diameter.

This pattern was made by Fostoria from 1938 into the 1940s. There is no mark.

The gold trim is somewhat worn, but there are no other condition issues.
