Spooners are also known as spoon holders. They were set on the table and filled with spoons. Teaspoons were used most often at meals and teatime so the spooners were just left on the table.
Spoon holders can be used for much more than holding your silverware at the table. You can add some mints or nuts with a small serving spoon. Or even add a small spray of colorful flowers. Mini Christmas ornaments or tiny Easter Eggs would also add a pop of color to your holiday table! Or just display them as is on a shelf!

Fostoria Glass Company was started in 1887. The factory was located in Fostoria, Ohio. In 1892, Fostoria relocated to Moundsville, West Virginia. Fostoria produced high quality fire polished colorless pressed pattern glass. In addition to tableware they also produced fruit jars and an assortment of oil lamps.
This continued until the 1920's when William Alexander Baxter Dalsell, president, introduced colored tableware along with complete dinnerware sets. For nearly a century, the company catered to and directed cosumer tastes. The Fostoria plant closed in 1986.
While Fostoria Glass has many popular patterns including Coin, Long Buttress and Colonial, the American pattern has remained the most widest collected pattern.
In 1915, Fostoria introduced the American line with 95 different items. The cube design produces a prismatic fire in both sunlight and artificial light. The original issue was only in clear glass. In the 1920's Fostoria produced some colors included an opaque black and pastel colors. These were only made during the 20's. Milk glass was introduced in the 50's and 60's. In 1982, Fostoria introduced Ruby Glass Forstoria. The success of the pattern led to around 340 different pieces.
The American line was one of my first loves. I tend to spot pieces of American from far away. However, it is easy to be fooled by a look alike or reproduction piece. Two of the more common patterns were Cubist by Jeannette Glass and American Whitehall by Lancaster. So how to tell the difference?
