This is the Coin pattern made by the Fostoria Glass Co. beginning in 1958. In 1965 the color olive green was introduced. This piece is the high-footed compote. The coins have a patriotic theme and alternate between a torch and star and an eagle with olive branch and arrows. The eagle coin includes the year 1887, which commemorates the date Fostoria was founded. Only the first quality pieces had frosted coins. This is high quality glass from one of the most famous of the elegant glass manufacturers. The Fostoria Glass Company was eventually bought out by the Lancaster Colony Glass Co., which has been producing coin glass. The reproductions by Lancaster do not have frosted coins. This compote is guaranteed to be authentic Fostoria glass. This piece is in excellent condition. Height: 6 5/8 in. (16.8 cm); diameter of rim: 8 1/2 in. (21.6 cm). (#5128A-CE)
