A piece in the green.
And one in crystal.
September 12, 2012
You can find this piece on ebay in a number of colours – olive green, clear, amber, amber with Carnival tones, etc. Generally vendors say that it is an early 1930s piece. But in this colour it would appear more recent than that date.
“This appears to be a very early pattern for the Indiana Glass Company because of the number #8, which you will often see following the name, Killarney.
So named by collectors because of its similarity to the Celtic cross. In some of the older catalogs you may find this pattern listed as part of the Narcissus Spray #162 pattern.
When Killarney was originally presented to the public is a bit of a mystery….only in crystal. Records state that Indiana Glass “reissued” this pattern in crystal beginning in the late 1950s, therefore we know it was prior to that time.
Killarney appeared in amber, olive green and iridescent gold and a frosted beginning in the early 1960s.” This information is also verified at the Carnival Heaven
It’s a sturdy, pretty piece regardless. I am posting photos with (1st photo) and without (2nd) the use of the camera’s flash. Can’t quite do the piece justice.
