For several years I have collected Indiana Glass, Clear Sandwich pattern
Depression glass and have posted about various pieces in my collection.
I began the collection because I liked the clear glass luncheon plates to
use with various patterns of English Bone China teacups at tea time.
As time passed, and I began to find more pieces, my collection began to include
cups, saucers, sugars, creamers, dinner plates, side dishes and more.
To be honest, I am nearly out of storage space.
This glassware was made 1925 - 1985 and was named for the "authentic"
Sandwich Glass made around Sandwich, MA.
These are a belated birthday gift from Mary.
The beautiful plate in the top photo is 13 inches in diameter and very heavy.
The bowl, below is 12 inches in diameter.
I just love the two pieces, either together or separate.
There are four major makers of Sandwich pattern: Anchor Hocking Glass Co.,
Duncan & Miller Glass Co., Indiana Glass Co., and Westmoreland Glass Co.
I have glassware by each of the above manufacturers, but I haven't yet closely examined
these beautiful pieces to determine which they are.
My question today:
Do any of you collect American-made Glass patterns?
I have a few pieces of various patterns of Depression glass and Carnival glass
from my grandmother and Aunt Mary,
but not enough, in my opinion, to call them a "collection."
