When I first saw Trojan in person I was amazed how pretty it is. It doesn't look appealing in the books, in fact it looks rather formal and stiff, but it's gorgeous in person. The first piece I ever saw was the large scroll handled console bowl and the etch was just perfect. The design is a spade-shaped fan or palm leaf shape with scrolls and swags. The individual palm leaves are rounded and don't connect to each other. Fostoria used their very elegant Fairax blank for the pieces and stemware. Take a look at this plate and you can see that it is 12 sided, not really circular. Stemware has a little faceted knob about an inch below the bowl that makes it easy to hold. We try to have Trojan in stock at all times and I've found that sales are sporadic. There are some serious collectors who want one of every piece and then other customers who have a few pieces and want to get enough more that they have a usable set. For instance, small plates like these are nice to serve dessert or cheese and crackers. You could use these with the wine goblets and have a very sharp looking set for your next wine and cheese get together with friends.
