Fostoria American Glassware – if you think it is”old lady” stuff, you need to re-think it. The beloved crystal of yesteryear has no rivals, even today, when it comes to serving up a meal with style and grace. When paired with dimmed lighting and candlelights, Fostoria crystal sparkles like no other. It makes for a beautiful composition, and creates the warmest of welcomes.
Water and wine goblets from the Fostoria American line are pictured here, as well as the dinner plates. The amber salad plate is from the Fostoria Vesper line and is placed on top of the American scalloped plate for an added burst of harvest color. The round candle holders were made from the Indiana Glass Company and look amazing with the true vintage pieces.
I added green sherbet dishes from the American Whitehall pattern. They look stunning sitting on top of the bread plates, and offer a nice dash of color to harmonize with the flower arrangement and placemats.
The beauty of the vintage pieces is that they blend so effortlessly with other china or glass patterns. It does not matter what color dishes you have, Fostoria crystal will go with it – because they have no color of their own. What they do have is this incredible clarity and sparkle – and because of this, they possess the power to dazzle us in any light that is bestowed upon them. Put simply, they make any holiday more magical.
