Lotus pattern Milk Glass - ID: Indiana Lily Pons
« on: April 06, 2006, 09:55:43 PM »
Does anyone know where I should look for White Milk Glass that has the lotus pattern on it?  

It's a specific one and the only one I've seen that has the blossom on the underside as part of it's design.

Its very similar to the Indiana Wild Rose Patterned Milk Glass except it's Lotus.  I thought maybe it was made by Indiana as it's so close, but I cant find anything on it.

All help is appreciated as my Mother has some pieces that have been broken over the years and I'd like to get her some.

Thanks!

Glen might be the one to help here as she is the 'in-house' Carnival glass expert and I think Indiana patterns might cross to milk glass?

Might have this wrong but try her web site anyway: http://www.carnival-glass.net

Thanks for the pics, that really helps. I think I have found it in the book A Century of Indiana Glass by Craig Schenning. The pattern is Lily Pons, #605. The pattern goes back to 1934 and was done in crystal and green. In the late 50s the 7 inch bowl was reissued in a variety of colors  including Milk white. It remained in production until the 1990s. Glen might know of this as it states one color as gold iridescent. Hope this helps, Terry

Sorry that I was unable to reply to this thread earlier - I've been away.

I can confirm that Terry is absolutely correct. The item is from Indiana Glass Co.'s "Lily Pons" #605 range. There were several shapes and slight pattern differences in the pieces in this range. This one is their 7" nappy.

These items were made in milk glass in the 1950s. They were also made in Indiana's Iridescent Gold, along with another item from the (slightly similar in design concept) #606 range, known as Loganberry. The main production era for the Iridescent Gold (Carnival) items was the 1970s. This item in Iridescent Gold, plus its history, is shown in "A Century of Carnival Glass".

Thanks, David, too  :lol:
