Vintage From Paul is pleased to offer these lovely Federal Glass Amber Madrid Sherbets. 

The Federal Glass Company produced the Madrid pattern.  Madrid was the most popular Depession Glass amber pattern ever produced. There are three sizes of pitchers, and numerous styles of tumblers. Serving pieces can be found for most every occasion. Rare items include an ashtay and gravy boat. This set is fun to collect and attracts many admirers today.

Madrid was reissued in amber in 1976 by the Federal Glass Company. These later pieces are marked with the date hidden in the pattern. Reissued Madrid is over 30 years old and has its own following today. This New Madrid was called "Recollection" and was issued to celebrate the American Bicentennial. In the 1980s Indiana made Madrid in crystal, pink and blue. Most of the molds for this issue were changed drastically. Tumblers, shakers, candlesticks, and the cake plate do not even remotely resemble the older pieces. The dinner plate, oval bowl, flat soups, cups and saucers, and butter dish molds do have mold differences, but these are harder to detect. The colors though are a dead give-away. The blue is much brighter then the old blue color and the pink is a washed out version of the old.

The Federal Glass Amber Madrid Sherbets measures 2-3/4 inches in height and 4 inches in diameter at the top.

Each of the available Federal Glass Amber Madrid Sherbets is in mint condition with no defects or flaws noted.
