A Time Remembered

Circa: 1960
Condition: Used
Manufacturer: Fostoria Glass Company/Made in USA
This clear glass handled nappy in the American pattern was produced by the Fostoria Glass Company, 1915-1972.
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 measures 1 3/4 inches high and 4 1/2 inches wide.
An addition to any Fostoria Glass Collection.
