SOLD Set of seven Burple glass water goblets in Forest Green. Made by Anchor Hocking in the 1950s
This popular Atomic era pattern was called Burple by Anchor Hocking. Collectors love to call them "Boopies". The tightly joined balls on the base make it a "Boopie". The goblets came in all sizes and many colors. Anchor Hocking made many more table glass forms with Boopies.
Water goblets are the hardest size to find because they were used the most and suffered more fatalities. The seven goblets are in perfect condition. They are in a favored color, patented by Anchor Hocking, called 'Forest Green'. Enlarge image 4 to see an old advertisement for the pattern.
The bowl was blown from mold with heat finished rim. The colorless Boopie base came from a mold, was hand-worked up with a twist, then applied to the bowl. They measure 6" tall and hold 9 ounces with ½ lip service. Beautiful for holiday tables. Sturdy enough for everyday use.
