These whimsical Milk Glass Rooster Cocktail Cups with cold painted features were made by Westmoreland Glass. Each white milk glass cocktail has sprouted a fanned tail with the head of the rooster on the opposite side. The feet are moulded into the stem, and the sides of the sherbet have moulded wings. The comb, wattle, and feet have been cold painted red, and the claws of the feet, the eyes, and the beak are black.
Each vintage glass stemmed cocktail measures 3-3/8 inches in diameter and 3-1/2 inches tall.
Made by Westmoreland circa the 1930s and 1940s, there is no mark.
These cocktail cups show very little wear. The black dot of the eye may be smaller on one side than the other, or one has a pinpoint sized white spot in the red on the crest. One has a 1/2-inch horizontal scratch near the tail that looks like a dark smudge. Overall each of these cocktails looks as though it was rarely used.
These little chickens would be cute used as a sherbet, or perfect at Easter for serving those tiny chocolate eggs or jelly beans!
