Hi Vintagerose.

I think both Fostoria and Indiana glass made this type of glassware.  It's colloquially known as the ice-cube pattern.  The proper Fostoria name is 'American' pattern, and Indiana glass called it 'Whitehall'.

I think they were from the same moulds, perhaps someone else knows how to tell the difference.   :?:

I'm with Max on the pattern identification - it's "American or "Cube" or "Whitehall" by Fostoria, Jeanette or Indiana. It's something that has had much study in the USA and the best answer I can give is to refer you to Toby Aulman's article that will tell you all about the history and the differences.

p.s. no need to apologise about the misunderstood gender identity :lol: Glen is the shortened form of my full name, but it is what I use ALL the time. Max is a girl too - and she used to have under her sign-off "Max - I'm a girl".  :lol: I've toyed with putting a girlie image under my name, but chose the rose instead, for other reasons. And finally, my thanks to Della for explaining on my behalf.

Thanks Glen, I'm pretty chuffed I got that right!  Funny how you learn things without trying sometimes - I did check on the Great Glass site though to make sure!  :lol:

I feel nostalgic now, I'm going to put my old moniker back.   :wink:

Max..... :lol:  :lol:

Actually I mis-remembered, didn't I? Wasn't it "Max - I am not a man"?

Ok I read the article it was very informative.  However I still do not know which one I have lol.  The Fostoria "flares out at the top" while whitehall does not.  Since it seems most everything I have is Indiana I'll go with that.  
I also had two other posts maybe you two can look into.  The milk glass compote,vase, that I now know is a punch bowl base.  Still need maker id, and the green compote I only received one reply and it was a best guess.  I am really interested in bowl.  Anyone that can help please.....

Warmly,
Vintagerose

I've bought & sold quite a bit of American Fostoria, and I've purchased enough Indiana Whitehall to say that I'm 99.9% sure your glasses are Indiana.  American pieces do have a more distict flare then yours.

As Toby pointed out in his article while Fostoria made some colors in their American line, a vast majority of this line was made in clear.  If it is color I usually think Indiana first.  

There is a big difference in the glass quality, and in person I can usually get it right based on that.  Also as Toby pointed out, if I'm in doubt on clear I use the blacklight test, Fostoria turns yellowish, Indiana doesn't.

Thank you for responding.  I looked up some Fostoria American and miine does not have the flare like those do.  I have to say I agree Indiana.
