Fostoria | American | Oblong Pin Tray

The Fostoria American Oblong Pin Tray was originally designed to hold pins, or other small items.  It was first produced in 1917, and this was a time in our history when pins and buttons were a necessary item in one’s wardrobe.  As the years went by, Fostoria Glass officially changed this item’s name from the [...]
