Fostoria Glass Specialty Co. of Ohio (not to be confused with the better known Fostoria Glass Co. of W. VA ) made iridescent art glass from 1910-1914. They hired ex-Tiffany workers and their main line of production was art glass shades. They called this art glass "IRIS". It was not signed in the glass as they used a paper label. That is why today most Fostoria Iris ware is mis-identified as everything from Tiffany to Quezal, etc.
12 inches high.

    I have been looking forever for information on this company. I have a pair of candle holders that even two experts from the Antique Roadshow could not identify. Finally an old art glass collector told me the name of the company but I could find no examples or information.

    You need to get the book FOSTORIA OHIO GLASS VOL.II by Murray (1992). He has a chapter on this company with photos on page 119.
