I really need some answers with this one. I was told they were depression glass but I am not sure. I was told they were Federal Glass, I really do not think it is. They are pink and not really heavy, no cracks or chips. I would love to find out the maker, pattern and if they are worth anything. I do not know anything about them except what I was told. I really appreciate the help.

    This is the Madrid pattern, originally produced by Federal Glass in the 30's. When Federal went bankrupt, these molds were sold to Indiana Glass who began making glass with the molds. Unfortunately, this goblet is one of the items made by Indiana and not an original item made by Federal. (Federal did not make a goblet in this pattern.) It is not depression glass but is still nice looking and something you wouldn't have to be afraid to use if you wanted to.

    when Federal reissued the Madrid pattern they called it Recollection and marked it with a date '76 for the reissue year of 1976. Subsequently Indiana Glass called their reproductions of this pattern Recollection when they started their production in 1982.

    Thank you both so much. I had a feeling about these but wanted to make sure. I took this info and did a search and found them on several sites. They seem to be valued at around $15 but that is from Replacements. I only paid $5 for the two of them.
