Sometimes it’s hard to know what glass you have. Fostoria marked very few of their pieces so unless you recognize the shape or the cutting or the etch it’s going to be difficult to identify the glass pattern.
I thought it would be helpful to have a good photo identification guide online that showed all the patterns that have passed through our store – at least those we have good photos of – and share them with you. This is by no means a complete pattern guide since I’ve had only a fraction of the hundreds of glass patterns Fostoria made.
This shows the etches, blanks, cuttings in different colors.
I’d love your comments. What do you like? What is missing that would be helpful for you?
As always, I’m glad to help you when I can. If you want help finding your pattern please post a photo on our Facebook site at www.DepressionGlassFun.com. It’s all part of making our store like antiquing with your best friend!
