Notice the little molded fleur de lis on the side of this pretty crystal creamer. When you see fleur de lis, think Fostoria Baroque. (The fleur de lis are the plume shapes by the bottom. The name means lily flower and was the royal symbol of France.) Fostoria used Baroque for some of our favorite etches, including Chintz, Navarre, Meadow Rose, Lido. It is not so plain a pattern as Coronet, which was made during much the same period as Baroque, and does not look at all colonial like Raleigh. Baroque is a graceful rich design that looks great in crystal, as we show here, or azure blue or topaz yellow, which are the other colors you will find. The one thing to check carefully when you buy Baroque are the tips on the little handle curlicues. I just listed this creamer on eBay and noticed tiny nick. It feels just a little rough so I inspected it once more. Indiana Glass made a pattern called Double Fleur De Lis, which has elongated fleur de lis at the center and partial motifs near the rim. I've seen the Indiana pattern mislabeled as Baroque. In fact I bought a piece the first month I was in business.
