This dainty set of four elegant, green glass, tulip shaped, stemmed wine glasses were made by US Glass which had merged with Tiffin before this pattern was in production. From the 199 Line, this size was numbered 14199, the lovely tulip shape combined with the paneled optic in the bowl of the glass are all the decoration these dainty wine glasses need. The color is the clear pale green that was so popular during this era.
Hazel Marie Weatherman's Colored Glassware of the Depression Era shows a 1926 US Glass advertisement featuring this pattern. There is no mark. Interestingly, items from the company carried paper labels with the US Glass name until 1927 when the labels were changed to carry the Tiffin name. This pattern continued in production into the 1930s.
Each glass measures 5-1/8 inches tall with the bowl of each being 2-1/4 inches deep. The foot and the rim are both 2-1/8 inches in diameter.
Three of the glasses show no damage, but unfortunately, one has a tiny nick, commonly called a fleabite, along the rim. This can be seen in the next to the last photo. Other than the occasional seed bubble in the glass or minor surfaces scratches on the feet, there are no other condition issues.
