The Fostoria Glass Company was built in 1887 at Fostoria, Ohio, but by 1891 had moved to Moundsville, West Virginia, where it remained until operations ceased in 1986. By the late 1930's, Fostoria was recognized as the largest producer of handmade glassware in the world.
Vaseline or Uranium glass is a transparent yellow to yellow-green glass owing its color intensity to the uranium content. Vaseline glass became popular in the mid-19th century with its greatest popularity being from the late 1880's to the 1920's. The term Vaseline glass is based on a perceived resemblance of petroleum jelly as formulated and commercially sold at this time in history.
This beautiful 'Tut' or 'Loving Cup' pattern vase, circa 1924-1928, is what Fostoria called the Art Deco design of the King Tut vase. It was produced in a variety of beautiful colors. The vase is quite heavy and measures 8 1/2" in height and 6" across the handles. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; a very light water line near the top. Great Vaseline piece for any colored glass collection.
