Fostoria Glass made Versailles from 1928 to 1944 in this lovely blue, a gorgeous green, pretty amber and pink. I have all three colors in my store Cat Lady Kate's Elegant and Depression Glass since this is one of the patterns I try to keep in stock, but I can't make up my mind whether the blue or the green is prettier. And the amber is nice too.... Are you wondering what a bouillon cup is? What, you mean you don't have a separate piece to serve clear soup as an appetizer? You use the cream soup bowl for both your Vichyssoise and your broth? Or even (gasp!) you use the same bowl for any kind of soup or salad or cereal because you only have a couple size bowls? What is this world coming to? Back in the day (before dishwashers but when people still had "help") people had separate dishes for almost everything. My reference book for Versailles shows this bouillon bowl, the larger cream soup which is nearly the size we would use today but with handles, finger bowl, soup bowl, cereal bowl and fruit bowl. Needless to say the bouillon is one of the less common pieces. I think it would be fun to serve dinner with all the right pieces arranged just so.Is blue your favorite color? If it is you know that it is not all that common in glass, especially beautiful etched glassware like this bouillon bowl from Fostoria. I like this shade better than cobalt blue and it looks grand with the etching and clear handles.
