Aqua Milk Glass Bud Vase

The Fostoria American pattern produced pieces in the Aqua milk glass color for a couple of years – from approximately 1957 through 1959. Only a few pieces in the American line (#2056) were made in milk glass, and the 6″ Flared Bud Vase was one of the lucky few. Aqua milk glass pieces are gorgeous, with soft color – consisting of both green and blue hues.

The 6″ Flared Bud Vase was primarily made in clear crystal; however, they were also produced in an assortment of milk glass colors – such as Aqua, White and Peach.  The Fostoria Glass Company was very proud of their milk glass, and they made their pieces by hand … just like antique originals.  The American Bud Vases that were produced in milk glass have a soft and mellow look to them.

Footed Bud Vase, Flared – 8½”

Item Number:  799
Height:  8½″
Production Dates:  1948-1983

The Footed Bud Vases in the Fostoria American line came in two versions – Cupped or Flared.  Both versions offered two different sizes – 6″ or 8½”. The Footed Bud Vase pictured here is the 8½” Flared version.  Sizes are approximate, as these pieces were hand-made.

After the Fostoria Glass Company closed its doors, several moulds in the American line were then transferred over to the new owner, Lancaster Colony. Thereafter, several pieces in the Fostoria American line were produced by other glass companies, such as Dalzell-Viking, etc.   The Footed Bud Vases, Cupped or Flared, were some of the pieces that were “reproduced” by other glass factories.  Slight variations in quality and/or appearance are possible when comparing a reproduced piece to an item made at the original Fostoria Glass factory.

The Cupped Bud Vases are very substantial for their size.  Both versions, the 6″ and the 8½”, are quite beautiful.  They were made for many years by the Fostoria Glass Company, and were still being produced until the early 1980’s.  The smaller 6″ size was introduced first, with the 8½” size being introduced a few years later.

Vase ~ Tall Celery

Item Number:  757
Height:  6″
Production Dates:  1915-1925 Celery; 1934-1970 Vase

The Fostoria Glass Company made a wide variety of vases in the American pattern.  From Rose Bowls to bigger and taller pieces, there were a lot of shapes and sizes in between. According to the official Fostoria catalog pages, this particular Vase was called either two things – a Vase, or a Tall Celery dish.  It debuted in the 1915 catalog as a Tall Celery and was later reintroduced as a Vase.

Some people also refer to this piece as a Straight Vase (based on its shape) or a Vertical Celery dish.  The Vase came in four different sizes – 6″, 8″, 10″ or a 12″.  The Vase | Tall Celery dish pictured in this post is 6″ high, has a base width of approximately 3¾”, and is quite substantial.  The bottom base of the Vase has a ray design.  The cube design is thick and beautifully fire-polished.

Vase – 8 Inch

Item Number:  785
Height:  8″
Production Dates:  1915-1970

Fostoria Glass Company made a wide variety of vases in the American pattern.  All of their vases, in my opinion, are quite beautiful – from the small to the large variety.  Each one, no matter the shape, is substantial in weight and durability.  Any flower or bouquet lucky enough to rest in one of these vessels will feel like Cinderella for one night.  The vases are that beautiful, especially when cleaned and cared for.

The “Vase” came in four different sizes – 6″, 8″, 10″ or a 12″.  The one pictured in this post is the 8″ size.  The 6″ Vase (also known as the Tall Celery) has a slightly smaller base, by about ¼”.  The base of the 8″ Vase is approximately 4″ in diameter.  According to the Fostoria catalogs, the top diameter measurement of the 8″ Vase is 3½”.  However, when I measured my personal collection, I found the 8″ Vase to have a slightly smaller opening than the 6″ Vase, by about 1/8″.  Herein lays the beauty of it all – since the pieces were lovingly handmade, all measurements are approximate and each piece could vary slightly.

The Fostoria American Vase – 8 Inch – also was a pioneering piece of the initial 1915 catalog debut of the American pattern. Some people also refer to these vases as “Straight Vases”, based on their shape.  This would be an easy way to differentiate them from the other vases; however, that is not their official Fostoria name.
