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, L.E. Smith, Fenton, 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 could be possible when comparing a reproduced piece to an item made at the original Fostoria Glass factory.
