I still think that the flowers look more like sunflowers than lilies.

Indiana Glass - Lily Pons - Ruby (4)


Indiana Glass - Lily Pons - Ruby (5)

I had not seen this flashed on Ruby colour in the past.  The colour is sprayed on to the amber bowl.  It is very vibrant.  I was lucky, the colour is virtually intact.







From July 13, 2013

Indiana Glass Lily PonsUpdate from my original May 11, 2012 posting.  Oddly enough I purchased a piece of this in milk glass yesterday and one today, in two different towns.  It spurred me on to try to further identify this piece.  Turns out is WAS made by Indiana Glass and is called Lily Pons.

This is what Carnival Heaven has to say about the pattern…

“Lily Pons is Indiana Glass Pattern Number 605. It was first introduced in 1930 and reproduced many times over the years. The original Lily Pon was made in crystal, green and pink, the usual depression glass colors. The reproductions were made in olive green, amber, milk glass, ruby flash glass and gold carnival glass.

So…these pieces were made in the 1960s & 1970s.  Have a look at the Carnival Heaven site for photos of the originals.


My long suffering partner supports my glass collecting habits.  When he is out and about he is often looking for a deal for me, even though he is not as familiar with glass pieces as I might be.

He recently brought home this bowl.  My first reaction was “hmmmm…” not quite my thing.  I suggested that we give it away to someone in the family who thought it was pretty.

But, lo and behold we were out and about visiting various antique shops when, over the course, of a day I came across this bowl twice, I think.

So…..I looked at it again.  It is very pretty. Shiny iridescent colours.  Flower petals make up the shape.  I saw this on ebay and it was cited to be a piece of Indiana Glass or Northwood.  No idea, can’t find a mark.

Now, although it is still not my thing, I will likely hang on to it for a bit and not pass judgment quite so quickly.

Co-operative Flint Glass Bon Bon Plate


Bon Bon, Center Handle Server, Wheel Cut

small-blue-centre-handle-server-5I used my recently acquired resource on center handle servers to identify this little server.  This is the first piece that I knowingly own from this company.

A quick search across the Internet brought up this information from Glassian.

Co-operative Flint Glass Company, Limited logo


  • Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania


  • 1869 – Opens as “Beaver Falls Co-operative Flint Glass Co. “
  • 1889 – Name change to “Co-operative Flint Glass Co.”
  • 1937 – Closed


  • “This firm started out as the Beaver Falls Co-operative Flint Glass Co. in 1869, later changing their name (in 1889) to Co-operative Flint Glass Co. The firm operated until 1937, closing due to the economic depression.” —Vaseline Glass Collectors, Inc.


Glassian is an interesting site that I have never perused.  Lots on information on insulators and vault lights.

This little server has pretty details.  It has blue paint, gold trim and wheel cut decorations.

Pyrex (Made in Canada) Piecrust / Pie Crust Delphite Bowls and Plates


Blue Glass, Delphite, Depression, Plates

pyrex-blue-plates-1I picked up these pretty blue pieces recently.  The colour is a light blue with some white slag features in the plates.

They are marked “Pyrex…Made in Canada” which didn’t mean alot to me.  But I found this excellent reference – Canadian Depression Glass by Walter Lemiski – that told me that these pieces were likely made in the 1940s.

They were marked Pyres and made by the MacBeth-Evans division of Corning Glass Works in Toronto.pyrex-blue-bowls-2

The pattern is called Piecrust because the design resembles the fork marks on a pie crust (I think).

I love the delicate colour.
