Undocumented Fostoria Cuttings

The Fostoria Glass Company was renowned for their ornate etchings and cuttings. The skill required to produce some of their more intricate cuttings took years of apprenticeship to attain the level of expertise. Many of the cuttings used on the Fostoria glassware is documented in Fostoria catalogs and therefore known to have been produced at the Fostoria glass factory. However, many more cuttings were done by decorating companies on Fostoria blanks and therefore are not documented. This article shows some very intricate cuttings on Fostoria pieces that we have not been able to attribute to being produced by the Fostoria Glass Company. If anyone can identify the cutting and the decorator that produced it, contact the Fostoria Glass Museum.
