From the years 1970 to 1998, Indiana Glass Company
offered glassware through a home party plan.
The nursery rhyme plate, pictured above, is just one of many items
I purchased from one of those parties
are there any of you who remember the home parties?
The child-size divided plate
has the first lines of two different nursery rhymes.
"See Saw Margery Daw"
"Where Are You Going My Pretty Maid"
Being fond of green glassware and pottery,
these bowls were found at a local outdoor market.
As was the Fostoria Clear Green creamer...
without the sugar bowl.
A vintage bunny candy dish, bought to display,
during the Easter Season.
It was been a while since I've had a Show and Tell Thursday.
I'm still in the middle of unpacking boxes, at the bungalow,
with projects whizzing all around me.
Very pretty! No I didn't know that The Indiana Glass Co had parties. I used to collect Depression Glass...not so much anymore but I still admire many pieces:)ReplyDelete
I believe they were called Tiara Exclusive House Party....they were like Tupperware parties.Delete
I love green glass, I'be very happy indeed if I owned your two glass bowls :-) unpacking is good for discovering beautiful things.ReplyDelete
Hi Christina...I actually have four of them. You are so right about unpacking, especially since some of the boxes have been packed for about 5 months. Now to find the perfect spot to display them.Delete
Oh these are beautiful. My Grandma had them. Pretty pretty. BReplyDelete
My grandmother didn't have any green bowls, but I did inherit her carnival glass. Thanks for your comment.Delete
That bunny is precious....I had never seen one.ReplyDelete
Thanks you, Rose...I have seen them in other colors, too. Some with the bunny ears up and some have the ears laid down.Delete
I do like that bunny candy dish.ReplyDelete
Hi Michelle....I usually fill it with candied jelly beans, in Easter colors.Delete
I love green glassware and that plate is fabulous :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Connie...at the time, I bought each of my children one. It was at one of those house parties I mentioned.Delete
I'm not good on glassware etc. But I was attracted by that green plate - it looks older than it is, which shows just how much I know! Hope all is well!ReplyDelete
Hello Mike...I think the design came from some "Old Mother Goose" illustrations. And, everything is fine here...just so busy with the bungalow.Delete
