Elegant glass footed teacup from Fostoria in their Fairfax Green pattern. They used this shape for lots of their etched patterns, but also produced it plain, or a plain ribbed, as is this one. It would fit well with a depression glass collection, or with many other Fostoria Glass patterns. It is uranium glass as it contains a minute amount of uranium and will glow under UV light. Sometimes you will see uranium glass erroneously called 'vaseline glass'.
The difference between elegant glass and depression glass is quality and craftsmanship. This glassware would have been much more expensive at the time it was made. Much of the work was hand done, and the glass is better quality with less mold lines then the cheaper lines made during the same period.
CONDITION: Excellent with no chips, nicks, cracks, or scratches. Some light signs of use.
SIZE: Cup is 2 1/2 inches high.
