's a nice old wartime-era piece of glass which was manufactured by the famous Fostoria Glass Company of Moundsville, West Virginia. The etched pattern on this was and is called "Gold Lace" (Fostoria's DecorationNo. 514), which was introduced in 1938 and discontinued in 1944. This particular piece is shown in the old Fostoria catalog listings as 2467 - 7-1/2 in.Vase.

This vase is actually just under 7-1/4" tall, is about 5" wide across the mouth, about 5-1/4" wide at the handles, and the base is just over 4" in diameter. This piece is free of any major damage: t is one small little nick (not much more than a rough spot) on the side of one of the handles at the top, and t is another little fleabite nick on the side of the foot (which also is little more than a rough spot). Both of these spots are not really noticable except on close examination (indeed, I didn't notice them at first, and I'm generally fairly careful). However, the piece is not "mint" (few things of this age really are), but it's nonetheless a beautiful old piece of glass, still perfect for its intended purpose, and would look lovely sitting on a shelf by itself or filled with flowers. So 's a wonderful gift idea for your favorite Fostoria, glass, or just plain old antique or "old stuff" fan.

Buyer to pay only ACTUAL shipping costs (USPS Priority from zip 67042), plus actual insurance costs, if insurance is desired. T's no "handling" fee on this, because it should fit nicely in a free USPS Priority box. I acquire and sell (and many times, keep, depending on whether or not the wife likes it) elegant and Depression glass because I like it and am a collector myself, not because I think I'm going to quit my day job by charging people an additional 5 bucks every time I sell something. E-mail me if you have any questions, and I'll answer as best I can.

Payment is expected within 10 days of the close of the auction. doing fairly well anyway). Cashiers checks/money orders are preferred, but personal checks are fine also (item is held for a couple of days for the check to clear, but repeat buyers ship as soon as I can do it...I do have a real job). I am also again accepting Paypal for the convenience of my buyers (so if I forget to activate it on the auction please remind me to do so).

I have a couple of other auctions running right now, but hopefully I'll be listing more items very soon, so be sure and click on "View seller's other items" (in the upper right of this page) for more quality elegant Depression-era glass. Thanks for looking!! .
