Oyster Cocktail


Item Number:  #33
Height:  3½″
Production Dates:  1915-1973

(aka Sherbet)

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 slightly throughout the following years. As time passed (circa 1939) it was called an Oyster Cocktail.  It had a rather long production life, from 1915 through 1973.

This piece is classified in my Drinkware category; however, it could also be included in the Desserts category. Both would be correct.  Since it was last called an Oyster Cocktail (for drinking Oyster Shooters), I have classified it in the Drinkware category.

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.  It is a very versatile piece capable of being used for many things – from cocktails to desserts, and for even serving sauces.
