Was up in St. Jacobs at the St. Jacobs Antique Market a couple weekends ago and came across a quartet of these pretty stems. They are 3 ounce wine glasses.
The etch is #279 – June and the line is #5098 (patented in 1928). A copy of the patent is available for review in the gallery of the Elegant and Everyday Glass Forum.
The depth of the etch is interesting. Three of the glasses are lightly etched and the fourth shows much heavier etching. I have tried to show this in the images. The larger photo has the lighter etching.
Such a pretty yellow.

I had the sugar at one point but sold it. June is a very pretty etch. This is in pink and it comes in blue, two yellows and clear as well. This etch is similar to another of Fostoria’s patterns – Romance. I gather that the pink and blue are the most popular colours for collectors. This is the only piece I have of this etch. Pretty, very romantic.
