Well, I think it's very popular.

A lot of people get into collecting it, because they inherited it from mother or grandmother. I got started because my mother had Fostoria glassware. We had it growing up, but I didn't appreicate it, until I was older. I would say the better crystals, the better items we inherited from our parents.


When I am talking with people, and I ask them how they got started collecting Fostoria, they will inevitably say they inherited some pieces from their mother or grandmother. Then, they become addicted to the beauty. It's just gorgeous; this glassware is amazing.




The reason for the popularity of Fostoria is because the company had in-house designers and artists. Many of their glass art was created in the 60s and 70s. They had some of the best designers working for them. One of the styles they came up with was the Art Nouveau style.
