I was getting ready to post this water goblet and thought I’d add to any earlier Fry postings. I wonder if I still have these sherberts. I have a big TV cabinet with a recessed top and tend to store sherberts up there (where they can get nice and dusty!) I’ll have to look.
Anyway, same etch DE (Deep Etch) 107. I have found out that the blank is Fry’s line #5119. Can’t recall where I bought these two pieces. But I still have the dog with steak thing going on when I see this pattern!
p.s. The yellow Lucite necklace now belongs to one of my daughters!

We took a beautiful drive up to Port Perry yesterday. There are two great vintage consignment stores on the main drag. At the first I bought a pretty yellow Lucite necklace. At the second, I added to my collection of sherberts. Got four (one with chips) for $10.00. I snatched them off the shelf like a dog going for a steak. I knew I already owned some DE 107, but couldn’t recall the blank. Wouldn’t have mattered, I would have bought them anyway!
I’ve shown this pattern in another stem. Saw this recently in Oshawa. I was sorry that I sold the earlier stems and jumped at the chance to buy this. You don’t see Fry stems kicking around very often.
These pieces were produced in 1917. I call it a low sherbert, but replacements.com has a different stem that they call the low sherbert.
The optic is wide and called a ‘rib’ optic.
