Punch/Custard Cup – Regular

Item Number:  615
Height:  2½″
Production Dates:  1915-1970

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 regular version, with a round handle.  The cup’s height is approximately 2½”, with a flat bottom.  The top diameter is approximately 3″ with a cup capacity of 6 ounces.

For me, this particular piece of glass is special … as it was one of the first cups introduced in the American pattern.  In fact, it is featured in the original 1915 Fostoria American catalog.  When introduced, Fostoria Glass Company referred to it as a “Custard” cup, not a Punch Cup.  It was not until many years later that Fostoria Glass started referring to it as their Regular Punch Cup.  One must remember, that as the times changed … so did people’s cooking and eating habits.  Fostoria Glass would sometimes add or delete items, or change their respective names, to reflect the current trends in the market.
