Description: Footed Handled Ice Tea (AKA Lemonade)
Item Number: #D-03
Production Dates: 1916-1925
It is with great honor that I present the Footed Handled Ice Tea, from the American pattern. Once you have seen this magnificent piece, I dare say you will not forget it. It looks like no other piece of drinkware, and it proudly stands approximately 5¾” tall. The Footed Handled Ice Tea is a very rare piece, adorned with a graceful handle and a supportive foot.
Some people refer to this piece as the Handled or Footed Lemonade. As of the last year it was produced, the Fostoria Glass catalog simply refers to it as the Footed and Handled Ice Tea Tumbler. Don’t let the different names confuse you, for this treasure is easy to distinguish simply by its footed and handled design.
Since the Footed Handled Ice Tea first made its debut in 1916, an entire century (and more) has passed! These vintage treasures are not easy to find. If you should find one while treasure hunting, consider yourself lucky. If the price is worthy, I highly recommend adding this piece to your collection.
The Footed Handled Ice Teas are limited in quantity and were produced for less than ten years. Treat them with the respect they deserve, and they should last another 100 years!
