Vintage Fostoria Pioneer Amethyst Teacup and Saucer - Elegant Glass of the Depression Era - Beautiful Purple Glass


This is an elegant glass footed teacup and saucer from Fostoria in their Pioneer pattern in their Amethyst color. Pioneer is similar to Fairfax in design, but lacks ribs. The beautiful purple glass makes this teacup and saucer a real stunner, and the quality is typical Fostoria.

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.
