Footed Cocktail

Drinkware

Item Number:  #21
Height:  2⅞″
Production Dates:  1935-1970

The Fostoria American Footed Cocktail looks quite different from many of the other Drinkware pieces in the American line.  It has no stem whatsoever, so it is fairly easy to distinguish from the stemware.  A unique and classy piece of glass, it has a round foot that is substantial for its size.  It holds about 3 ounces, and is approximately 2⅞” high.  The Footed Cocktails were produced for approximately thirty-five years, so we can still find them without too much difficulty.

Fostoria American Footed CocktailEven by today’s standards, the Footed Cocktail makes an excellent presentation piece for serving a wide range of cocktails and desserts.  With its beautiful shaped design and sturdy base, it is a great choice to use as a martini glass.  The Footed Cocktails are also wonderful for serving sorbet, gelato, and other delicious desserts in grand style.

Classic cocktail glasses have an inverted cone shape, and typically hold between 3 to 6 ounces.  They are used to serve cocktails without ice, or ‘straight up.’  Most cocktails have wonderful and interesting aromas, so the wide mouth of the Footed Cocktail allows the delicious scent to get very close to the nose of the drinker.
