Seneca Glass Company’s No. 1972 Cascade Pattern Footed Goblet

Jun 5, 2023 | Museum Monday Treasures

Today’s Museum Monday treasure from the Museum of American Glass in WV is a footed goblet in the Seneca Glass Company’s No. 1972 Cascade pattern. It is in accent red (ruby) with a crystal foot and holds 15 ½ ounces. We also have a crystal goblet in the collection and two old fashions, one in green and one in brown. They are 11 ½ ounces. The charm blue glass is a cocktail or juice and is only 7 ½ ounces. Cascade was introduced in 1979 and was one of a number of patterns brought out in the company’s final years that attempted to make a transition from the traditional elegant glassware they had always produced to more contemporary offerings in the brilliant colors that had become so popular in the 1970s.
