I have a confession to make. When I first saw Fostoria Meadow Rose etched elegant glass in the glass reference books I didn’t like it. It seemed wimpy. In person it is a peaceful beautiful patter that has a classy style all its own.
The candle holder shown here is a good example. You can see the design of flowers and swags around a central plain spot. Looks ok, right? It’s much prettier than it looks, and of course I like candle holders so it is very much more than ok.
Fostoria made Meadow Rose in crystal and some pieces in a light azure blue that is stunning. It is on the Baroque blank so you know to look for the graceful fleur de lis and curlicue handles.
I picked up a few pieces at first only because the pattern sold well online and then found out how special this is. Now I know why it sells well!
