We always have Fostoria's Chintz etched glass in stock. And I have several of the tall water goblets. So why didn't I sell any to Christmas shoppers this year? Because they were in a box and not listed. Oh my. I sold out of a listing earlier and forgot to add more inventory. Now that I've shown you how not to get this popular pattern out for others to enjoy, let's look at this vintage stemware. Fostoria made this from 1940 to 1973 and only in crystal. You can immediately recognize this design because the etch looks spiky. The rose stems trail around the goblet bowl and they have thorns and pointy leaves. There is no center medallion and it isn't symmetrical. Fostoria made two sizes of water goblets, the taller one like this shown here that is 7 5/8 inches tall and holds about 10 ounces filled to the brim, and a shorter one that is 6 inches tall. Think of the shorter goblet as a stemmed tumbler. It doesn't look as goblet-y as this tall on on the long elegant stem. I'm aware of 10 different stemware sizes in Chintz. There are the two water goblets, a claret wine which looks like the water but is only about 5 1/2 inches tall, the ice tea, which holds the most and has no stem beyond a chunky ball with wafers, two sizes of sherbets, a cocktail which looks like a sherbet but slightly narrower and 5 inches tall, a juice glass, oyster cocktail, and of course, a cordial. As usual, the cordial is the most expensive, about $80 each. Fostoria's Chintz is relatively available and moderately priced. We have the water goblets listed at $50 each with free shipping. If you are looking for a vintage etched stemware pattern, consider Fostoria's Chintz etch. It's got a lot of looks and goes very well with contemporary dinnerware.
