I am a fostoria glass collector. I have mostly Oakleaf and Oakwood, in Dawn (rose), green, and Canival. I stumbled on this piece on e-bay. I reconized the Fleus De Lis handle and knew it was made by Fostoria (I also have two extact Candy Boxes in Oakwood Carnival and Oakleaf green pattern). However, the seller didn't. I bought it for $24.00. So, here is what I know......Between 1920-1929 fostoria introduced "Color" dinnerware pieces. I believe that this is a special addition piece, No. 66 Hammered Silver, in Amber, and Green dinnerware. What I also discovered is that Fostoria had there own Silver Smith. In fact, they contracted him out to other glass companies. I love this piece because the sterling silver adds class to the piece, and its has wonderfully flawless patina. I have looked high and low for similar pieces and came up empty handed. These pictures do not do this dish justice! I truly stumbled on a very rare find. thank you all for reading my story! hope to have more treasures for you to read about. Yours Truly, Ginny.
