This is the Fostoria American Flared High Sherbet dish. Fostoria made several sherbet dishes, ranging from a flared design to a “regular” design. One can distinguish between the two because the regular variety does not have flared sides, whereas the Flared Sherbet does. The Flared High Sherbet only came with a round foot, and holds approximately 4½ ounces. It is about 4⅜” tall.
While the Fostoria Glass Company officially called this item a “Sherbet” dish, it is quite common to see them used as drinking glasses – especially for champagne and other cocktails. Many brides used them for their wedding toasts, and still do. Therefore, don’t let the name of the item prevent you from using it in other ways.
The sherbet dishes also came in different heights, from low foots to high foots. If you are interested in learning more about current availability and pricing, please click the following sponsored link for available Flared Sherbets on eBay.
