Arcopal France Novoctime White Demitasse Set 6 Octagonal Cups and Saucers. Unique and lovely vintage 12-piece Demitasse Set made in France by Arc International in their white translucent glass Arcopal France line of tableware. Novoctime White is the pattern name and features all white, octagonal / 8 sided pieces. Set includes six demitasse cups and matching saucers. All pieces are in excellent to mint condition; there is no damage or staining to any of the 12 pieces.
First introduced in 1958, this glassware is fully tempered, high-strength and durable, is break and chip resistant, and is microwave and dishwasher safe.
Arcopal is very thin but is five times stronger than china. In 1986, Arcopal was replaced by Arcuisine. This information confirms this set was made between 1958 and 1986.
Cups measure 2-3/8 inches tall with a 2-inches diameter opening, round “one-finger” handle and flat bottoms.
Saucers measure 4-1/8 inches diameter and have fluted / raised sides that do not touch the table surface; bottoms have a thin flat base in the center. There is a molded cup well in the center with a raised ridge around it.
