….and here is the white Orange Blossom version. Don’t know why it has a different name!

Still updating my Indiana Glass. I have found out, from Ms. Adler, that this pattern is also called Flower and Leaf Band. It was introduced in 1933 in the off white French Ivory and reissued in the ’50s in white milkglass. It was then called Orange Blossom. It is Indiana’s pattern 239.

My lovely, now 28 year old, daughter bought me a copy of Warman’s Depression Glass Field Guide – 3rd edition. I don’t ordinarily seek out pieces of Depression glass, but upon leafing through the book I was taken with these pieces and decided to order them. Got them on ebay. They didn’t disappoint.
This is what the guide has to say – “Manufactured by Indiana Glass Company, Dunkirk, Indiana, in the 1930s and in the 1950s. Made in custard colour, known as French Ivory.” The colour is very subtle and I hope it can be picked up in the photo.
There are a number of other pieces. By the value in the guide, it looks like the sherberts must be the rarest. They seem to be worth the most. I think I will be happy with just these pieces to add to my sugar/creamer collection. But….if I came across them at a good price……..never say never!
