I found these at a garage sale recently and thought they were quite interesting. They are really quite heavy and have several raised rosebuds all around the exterior. Measure 2 1/2 across and 4 1/4 high. No markings on the bottom. Does anyone have any idea what they are? They are the heaviest small glasses I've ever come across in my lifetime. Closest I can come to are Fenton Colonial Blue Raised Roses Tumblers. Must be an early make as later reproductions had the Fenton logo. Am I off target or spot on?

    Fenton first made this pattern in the 1960s in their Colonial colors (green, pink, blue) before they began marking their glass.

    Incidentally, their inspiration for this pattern was a line by the United States Glass Company (Tiffin) that was produced in the 1920s. Fenton copied the pattern and expanded the line. I believe USGCo only made dresser items and candy boxes. Most (if not all) of theirs was colored glass with a satin finish.

    Thanks Paul that is some good information. Your very knowledgeable. So that would make them "fairly" old. I like them and intend to keep them and pass them on to my children. I'll have to look for a bit of information on USGCo as well. Thanks a new one for me....
