Fostoria Moonstone Goblets
The Fostoria Glass Company began producing glassware in 1887 and continued for over a hundred years to make quality glassware until the last Fostoria glass was produced in 1990. Even throughout the Great Depression Fostoria Glass maintained its high quality, especially when it came to it’s cheaper glass competitors. Fostoria began producing colored glassware in 1924, with colors like green, amber, blue, and canary. These colors were followed by a variety of new colors including the Rose or Azure color of these goblets. Fostoria’s colored stemware and dinner pieces are highly prized by collectors today still.
Arcoroc Pink Swirl Goblets
Based out of Arques, France, the Rosaline Pink Swirl glassware was produced by Arc International under the Arcoroc brand. In the early 1980’s there was a surge of people collecting “Depression Glass”. It was a hot commodity and highly sought after. Because everyone was looking for pink glass, Arcoroc decided it would produce a pink glassware line similar to the Depression Glass of the 30’s and 40’s. Although it was not the real thing and was made in 1980, people started collecting it as a cheaper alternative. Thus, the Rosaline Pink Swirl line was born. It was sold in department stores until 1989 and then could only be found in Flea Markets and thrift stores. Today it is almost as highly sought after as true Depression Glass. Rosaline Pink Swirl comes in a full line of glassware including plates and serving pieces too.
