Fostoria Palm Leaf Brocade Etch 1929 Mother Pearl Iridescent Glass Whipped Cream

FostoriaAbsolutely gorgeous and scarce Fostoria Palm Leaf Brocade etched whipped cream pail in beautiful condition with no chips, cracks or repairs.  Made only one year, 1929, etching 291, so these are very difficult to find.

Mother of Pearl pink iridescence with gold trim around top. Very minor wear to the gold, nearly intact.  Deeply etched, gorgeous pattern. 4-3/4″ across by 2-1/2″ high without handle.  I did not polish the handle as I love the patina as it stands; lucky winner can decide whether to keep or polish.
