PLEASE VIEW ALL IMAGES- THEY FORM A MAJORPART OF THE DESCRIPTION
OLD FOSTORIA BISCUIT BARREL
This is an absolutely stunning condition Fostoria American Clear pattern biscuit barrel / cookie jar.
I doubt you will find one anywhere in better condition – the only thing to possibly criticise it for is a few internal air bubbles from the original manufacture process.
Silver plated rim, handle and lid all in fabulous unworn condition. There is a mark on the rim in the form of a cupid in a shield – used by John Grinsell & Sons, Birmingham, England. Their London mark was also Cupid, but without the shield. There is also a number - 14156 which I guess is the registration number or patent.
Approx 7 inches tall and heavy at approx 1kg – hence high postage costs – sorry!
American - Fostoria's No. 2056crystal American pattern was introduced in 1915. This pattern was quickly accepted by the American public and soon became Fostoria's leading seller. The number of pieces in the pattern was expanded continuously through the years. During the 1920's colour was introduced into the Fostoria line and some pieces of the American pattern were also made in colour. The known colours of early American include amber, aqua, dark blue, canary, ebony, green, jadeite, lavender and yellow. Some pieces were also produced with ruby flashing. Later production included American inwhite milk glass, smoke, pink and red. When Fostoria closed in the 1980's, American moulds went to the Indiana Glass Company. Production of some American pieces continued from both original and modified moulds for the Fostoria outlet stores.
