This stunning piece is one of Fostorias finest. Made in the mid to late 50s the Milk Glass Chanticleer had production problems.
The original split tail design would break when removed from the mould. Fostoria modified the mould and changed the split tail to a single piece. It did not seem to help. Since the problems could not be corrected the Milk Glass Chanticleer had a limited production run. It has been said that there are likely less than 20 in the entire country.
Here is your opportunity to own a piece of Americana, a piece of history. No Fostoria Collection is complete without this stunning piece. Please view the photos carefully, they are part of the description.
The piece has a few straw marks that were common to the manufacturing process. I have taken a photo of the bottom of the Chanticleer. The discoloration you see is glue. At some point someone glued it to a wood stand.
The glass is not damaged and the glue can be heated and removed. When the Chanticleer is standing you can not see it. This in no way detracts from the beauty of this piece. This piece is priced for the end user. Garage sale shoppers move on.
If your just looking for a cheap piece to resell in your antique booth, then dont waste your time or mine. This is not for you. This is for the serious collector who appreciates the history of the piece.
Someone who wants own something that maybe less than 20 people out of 350 million people in this country own. A piece that can change your average Fostoria collection, to the envy of other Fostoria collectors.
My price is pretty firm. That being said, I will entertain serious offers. Offers that are not serious will be ignored.I will not give this piece away. I have no problem keeping it.
