Thanks Vicki.  I just listed it today - the buyer says she's in the military and can't afford any more, it is a gift for her mother.  I'm a sucker for a good story...lol. 

Comment by vicki hufstetler on July 22, 2014 at 7:26pm

Donna, have you just listed it? If so, I would hold out, at least for a week! "Spanish lace" is one of the most popular patterns in Fenton dinnerware, and Pink, is also "hard to find" if I recall correctly?

You know me, I don't always remember things right - LOL I've got too much stuff in my head to keep tract of, so some just gets lost, I guess! :)

Kathy the cobalt glasses are beautiful.  When I first looked at them I thought maybe Lenox / Imperial.  I did a quick search but I couldn't find them.  They may be as Vicki says Czech.

 

Mary, what a cheerful teacup.  Who can resist red roses?  

Comment by vicki hufstetler on July 22, 2014 at 7:22pm

Hi Kathy, Then I would say this is either a "Small Wine stem" or possibly a "liqueur or Sherry" stem! Sure is pretty! Do you have just this one?

Comment by Donna Cook on July 22, 2014 at 7:21pm

I just listed this Fenton pink milk glass cake stand in the Spanish Lace pattern - I received an offer of $84  - I listed it for $175 or best offer.  Should I hold out for more $$  ?

Vicki,

 The cup is 3.25 inches tall.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on July 22, 2014 at 6:24pm

Hi Everyone! Kathy C - Is that Cobalt goblet crystal?

It looks a bit like a pattern that I think Cambridge or Fostoria made in the 1950's-80's, but I don't think it is the same. So, I suspect you have a Czech made goblet there. About how big or tall is the actual cup part? Wines come in two sizes; Small and large, so it could be that. Water is generally a larger type of Goblet, Though sometimes the large wine's double as waters. It's very pretty, and also looks to be very good quality! That's what led me to Czech/Bohemia.

Mary - I adore your tea cup and saucer! It's AWESOME! I love "40"s stuff, just in general, and your set screams it! :)                     

Also - have you ever noticed the difference in taste, in both Coffee and Tea when using: Fine Bone China, Heavy/Thick Pottery VS - Glass mugs? I prefer the glass mugs, either Crystal or thick glass for Coffee, and the Fine bone china for tea.

What do you'all think?

Shirley that is a beautiful punch bowl...lovely for summer parties !! Hope Judy finds some nice pieces of glass to cheer her up....nice browse around the Charity / Goodwill shops always cheers me up !!

Interesting Dark Cobalt Goblet. Can't decide if a water or wine goblet. Research comes up empty. any clues? Doubt it's old.

6 inches tall, 3 inch base

Thanks Mary, she wants to go to a local Good Will Thursday so hopefully that's a good sign.
