I likely should have included some other interesting information from the Bredehoft’s text: production date 1942-1957; colour in crystal, rare black plates in black; designer Horace King; introduced at a show in Pittsburgh; and, designed to compete with Imperial’s ‘Candlewick’ line.

I have this great book called Heisey Glass: 1896-1957 by Neila and Tom Bredehoft. The Bredehofts have given alot of interesting information about different Heisey lines. Regarding Lariat, they write:
“Lariat is the original name, although Heisey first referred ti the pattern as Gordian Knot……..The inspiration for this pattern was supposedly from the twisting of a heavy gold watch chain.” (page 300).
