Fostoria made a few different punch cups, with most differences being attributed to their handle and whether the cup was flared or regular in shape. This particular Fostoria American Punch Cup is the flared variation, with a flat handle. The Punch Cup has three mould seams, and the piece shown here has a top band of clear glass – approximately ½” high.
It is important to note that the flared Punch Cups, with flat handles, varied slightly in size. The one shown in this post is the bigger one, with a top diameter of approximately 3½”. The height of the Punch Cup is approximately 2¼”, with a flat bottom. Other size variations (up to about ¼”) might also be found in the height of the clear band of glass around the top of the cup. The Punch Cup holds about 6 ounces.
This Punch Cup is referenced to as “flat-handled” because the top of the handle is flat. This characteristic is different from other punch cups and coffee cups made by Fostoria Glass, which featured a typical round handle.
