A Time Remembered

Circa: 1976
Condition: New
Manufacturer: Fostoria Glass Company/Made in USA
This wonderfully crafted cobalt blue Martha Washington goblet with candle insert was made for Avon by the Fostoria Glass Company in 1976.
Fostoria began as a glass-producing house in 1887, the factory was located in Fostoria, Ohio. Within four years, Fostoria moved to Moundsville, WV. In 1891, the company built one furnace capable of firing 14 pieces, a remarkable achievement for the late 19th century glassworks industry.
By 1925, Fostoria's factory had expanded to include five more furnaces. Throughout the 1930's, Fostoria struggled to survive. The Great Depression had a notable impact on the luxury glassware market. The Second World War reduced Fostoria's labor force by half and caused much of the company's resources to be devoted to the war effort. Like many other companies throughout the United States, Fostoria weathered the hardships imposed by war. It is during the war period that Fostoria produced many of its most famous patterns including Chintz (1940), Colony (1940), Romance (1942), and Holly (1942).
In very good + condition without chips, cracks or fleabites it still has the never used candle insert and measures 8 inches tall by 3 1/2 inches at the top and a 3 1/4 inch base.
An addition to any Cobalt Blue, Avon or Fostoria Glass Collection.
