... what this thing is? Well, I do!
I found it at Goodwill ... a different Goodwill than where I found the little pitcher (below) of the same pattern. I just posted a few minutes ago that I had no clue what this was, or who it was made by. I decided to do a little research and found out these pieces were made by Libbey Glass
from the 50's to the 70's. The pattern is now discontinued.
Go here for the info and more pictures.
I'm really excited I went ahead and did some research ... I thought it was going to be a lot harder than it was, so I'd called on you to share you knowledge! Now I'm sharing with you.
Oh, and it's a dessert set. How fun!
