|Indiana Glass Company - Dunkirk, Indiana|
|Tracing its roots back to 1896, the Indiana Glass Company of Dunkirk, Indiana made a large amount of iridized glass in the 1970's. In 1971, they introduced their Iridescent Blue. This was followed by Iridescent Gold, Iridescent Sunset (amberina), Iridescent Green and Iridescent Amethyst.|
|Oval center bowl
Without doubt, the most frequently seen piece on ebay. Twelve inches long and found in Indiana's blue (most often seen), green, and amber.
Often called "Teardrops" because of the design. Mostly seen in blue but amber can be found.
Princess candy box
Oblong candy box
Windsor, found only in blue, was made in a variety of shapes including the covered candy, bowl, and creamer and sugar shown here. Also seen are a stick-type butter dish and tumblers (though no pitcher as yet).
Shown are the boxes in which these pieces come to make the point that many Indiana pieces can be found with their original boxes. These slick and colorful boxes were from the latter production of Indiana. Earlier boxes were plain with a line drawing of the piece.
Eleven inches in diameter with a fine hobnail back, these egg trays are found mostly in amber, this green, and an occasional uniridized blue.
Hors d'oeuvres tray
Indiana's version of this popular shape is about 7 1/2 inches long. Seen in blue, green, amber, and several other colors. They can be distinguished from other maker's examples by the beaded edge to the bowl and the hen design in rather low relief. The base is almost plain.
Each plate was available in either blue or amber and came in a commemorative box.
|Tiara Exclusives was a sales and marketing plan similar to Avon Products, where individuals sold the following glass items at home parties. Mostly non-iridized glass was sold by Tiara. The only iridized glass were these lime green items.|
|Tall Footed Compote (or Jelly)
These are sometimes called a Tulip compote. They are about 7 1/2 inches tall. They are quite common.
