Glass From The Past
This pink 6.5" high tab-handled ice tub in Paden City's Line #191 or #191 1/2 Party Line (also known as Soda Fountain) is in excellent condition, no flaws noted. Nice size, made late 1920s into the 50s.
These 3 3/4" clear glass footed cordials or whiskey or bar tumblers are in mint condition; no chips, cracks, roughness, etc. Holds 3.5 oz to the rim, so I would say 2 oz comfortably. Design is similar to several Depression era companies, but I haven't identified the pattern specifically. Definitely from the 1920s/1930s or earlier. Price is for a set of 5.
These Depression era 5" Wine Stems have an amethyst bowl and simple crystal stem and base; all 3 are in perfect condition. I haven't been able to identify the maker or pattern, but the quality is such that they must be from one of the elegant glass makers (Cambridge, Fostoria, etc.). The color matches Cambridge's Amethyst exactly. Each holds 3 oz., the standard wine size of the era, better for use as a cocktail or cordial today.
