    I found 12 purportedly Fostoria salad plates (turned out to be Tiffin), but when I went to search for the name of the pattern, I was deluged with associated but not pertinent information, no matter how many search terms I used. I am hoping someone knows a specific site for pattern search. The plates look unused, so I think fairly new. The plates are clear glass; the bottom rims are polished not molded, and they are 8 inches in diameter. Any help will be gratefully appreciated.

    Fostoria went out of business in the mid to late 1980s. So can't be newer than that.

    Thank you for that information. There were also two sets of 12 various shaped glasses when I got there, so they may have been more for display than for use.

    I checked etches not there. I'll search more categories but this is a helpful site.

    Try Glastonbury-Lotus Fuchsia etch. I don't know who made the blanks.

    The blooms look somewhat like fuschia, but the foliage does not. And I stress "somewhat" about the blooms because most varieties I've seen do not have as many stamens as the artist has included here.

    As many have said here - glass and pottery decorators are not botanists. ;)

    I think fuchsia is right. I'm not see the rest of the shapes though so far. Do you have an example?
    thanks very much. The pattern was very confusing so I thought I would ask what you thought. Fuchsia looks right to me too

    They have another purpose but I think you are right about the holiday setting. Thanks.
