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!!
