Love the look of soft blue delphite glass? Here it is in a set of four Doric Depression Glass Footed Sherbets by Jeannette! Doric is a pretty panel and grid molded pattern. While most of the panels are plain, the top band of panels on these Dessert Cups alternates between plain and starburst panels. This band is separated from the lower panels and the rim by two narrow concentric rings. The foot of each piece also has the panel design on the underside. The pattern is especially pretty in the opaque blue of delphite glass.
Made by Jeannette from 1935 to 1938, there is no mark.
Each sherbet is 3-1/2 inches tall and 3-1/2 inches in diameter at the rim. The sherbet cup is about 2-inches deep, and the circular foot is 2-5/8 inches in diameter.
As is common in this pattern, there are a couple of tiny nicks, commonly called fleabites, along the top-most band just below the rim. One sherbet has a couple of stress cracks on the underside of the cup. These were created during the manufacturing process and do not go through. All will need some cleaning. There is a yellowish-brown residue, like browned butter, that easily wipes away, but I keep finding more tiny bits of it within the design where it escapes a once over. Similarly, there are a handful of pinpoint-sized black spots embedded near the seams, especially where you might find a little mold seam roughness.
Other than the expected flaws characteristic of Depression Era Glass, such as bubbles, mold seam roughness, or other irregularities, there are no chips, cracks, or other damage.
