Hello! Can anyone identify the pattern on these sherbert glasses? I have not been able to find it. Thank you!
Here is a link that might be useful:
Looks like Hex Optic or Honeycomb by Jeannette Glass Co. 1928-1932. Color was "new brilliant green" also in wild rose &in 1930's Ultra Marine & in 1950's Iridescent. Page 96 Collector's Encyclopedia of Depression Glass 18th ed. Gene & Cathy Florence. It was a favorite pattern & much used so many pieces were chipped. Your pieces look new!!
I was thinking it might be Honeycomb, but the sherberts I found online with this pattern looked a bit heavier, without the flaired rim. These glasses are quite thin, with no seam that I can detect. Did they make the different styles using the same pattern? Thanks for you help, Sunnyca!
"depression glass" as we think of it was pressed in a mold with a very low relief pattern. But there was also something classified as "elegant depression glass"...which was usually hand finished with more detail and finer glass...clearer.
I think your sherbets belong in the elegant category. They appear to be hand finished and if I am seeing correctly have a bubble in the stem.
Try searching for elegant depression glass.
I have linked one site but haven't searched it.
Good luck....they are lovely...that green is luminous!

Try Googling Honeycomb pattern as that is what other glass companies called it. I went through my Ruby Glass of 20th Century thinking maybe someone made honeycomb items in ruby but didn't find any.Sorry!
This is the closest I've been able to find to my sherberts. What do you think? Same pattern? Thanks, Kathy
I think it's Fenton diamond optic....and I think the pink you posted are the same thing....but not positive that it's what is called "diamond optic".
Thanks Linda. Diamond Optic is what the seller of the pink glasses was calling them, but they didn't know the maker. The search continues!
I believe the maker is Fenton. I can find plates that look like that pattern but can't find any sherbets.
