Description: Punch Cup – Flared, Flat Handle
Item Number: #D-02
Production Dates: No Dates
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 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.
