Item Number: #33
Production Dates: 1915-1973
This is the Fostoria American Oyster Cocktail; however, when it was first introduced in 1915 – it was called a “Sherbet”. Though it is the same dish, its name did change throughout the years. As time passed (circa 1939) it was simply called an Oyster Cocktail, and so it remained. It had a rather long production life, from 1915 through 1973.
This piece of glassware is beautiful and versatile – and because it is known by different names, I have classified it into two different categories – Desserts and Drinkware. This piece is most known as an Oyster Cocktail, simply because it had a longer production life under that description (versus the Sherbet name). The Oyster Cocktail dish is approximately 3½” tall and can hold about 4½ ounces. With a bowl and a stem, this is a unique and interesting dish in the Fostoria American line.
