Fostoria Stemware: The Crystal for America Second Edition (Identification & Value Guide) This link uses my Amazon affiliate and I do get a small compensation from purchases you may make via this link.Do you like vintage stemware? I do! And I like to identify what I have. If you have Fostoria stemware this book is a must. Milbra Long and Emily Seate are a mother/daughter team that are consummate experts in Fostoria glass. They have written several guide books divided by era and type of glass. This book covers all the Fostoria stemware from the early 1910s and onward. The best thing about the book is that it shows the entire stemline - goblets, sherbets, oyster cocktails, tumblers - and gives the size and capacity of each one. Since it can be hard to differentiate the different pieces and shapes this book is very helpful. It's great to see the different stemlines that Fostoria used for their designs. If you are interested in glass then browsing this will give you a sense of some classic shapes to watch for. As an example, I found some Fostoria Evening Star sherbets at the Salvation Army. I didn't know the cutting but recognized the blank as Fostoria. I bought the pair for a dollar each, looked them up in my trusty Fostoria Stemware book, and sold them for $20 each. That's a good outcome! The book is organized by stem blank and shows all the different etches Fostoria put on each blank. If you can identify the blank you can find the etch. It's another path to identify glass.
