Table of Contents

Among the most beautiful of glass objects are Fostoria Glass Company's Elegant and Master-Etchings. This stunning book gathers a comprehensive assortment of the most popular Fostoria etching patterns from 1918 through 1982. Artfully displayed in over 800 color portraits, these lovely decorations were in the forefront of Fostoria's dinnerware production and provided some of the company's most beloved patterns for bridal registry in America. The pattern introductions provide etching numbers; dates of production; original company colors; and the dinnerware, tableware, and stemware blanks used for each pattern. Scarce, hard to find items are included.

The text contains a well-researched history of the Fostoria factory, an introduction to the designers and the craftsmen who created the etchings; the unique advertising, marketing, and bridal registry methods; how Fostoria glass was made; the steps in etching on glass; how to choose and use Fostoria glassware; and a detailed quick reference guide to the etchings. This book, the first to document the company's vast production and advertising range for the etchings, is a must for every Fostoria collector, glass enthusiast, or glass dealer, from novice to most experienced. Captions include current market values.
