West German Frosted Glass Dessert Cups

8 Jul

IMG_9347Each glass dish has a paper stamp underneath stating ‘made in West Germany’.  These lovely dessert dishes could be dated anywhere from 1945 to 1990 which was the time frame when Germany was divided into East and West.   Hard to be precise with the date of manufacturing but these colours were very popular in the fifties.

The frosted bases remind me of Blendo Glass by the West Virginia Specialty Glass Company, which was at the peak of its production in the 1950s and ‘60s.

Please note that the turquoise dishes are now SOLD!!

Blendo Parfait Glasses and Martini Jug

Blendo Glassware

Shades of the fifties

Wonderful 1950’s vintage Martini Pitcher  made by the West Virginia Glass Co. and called Blendo.  Blendo tumblers, pitchers, salad sets, cruets, shakers and bowls were made in many different shades of pastel colours.  I found a blog by a Blendo collector you can check out http://thriftinginthelou.blogspot.ca/2010/03/my-west-virginia-glass-blendo.html to see other pieces.  The parfait glasses may not be by West Virginia but they certainly are the same vintage and have the  frosted colour on the bottom like Blendo Glass.

Note: These items are now SOLD!
