Tea Room Depression Glass

The Indiana Glass Company began in Dunkirk, Indiana, in 1907. The company produced Depression and carnival glass in the 1930's. Between 1927 and 1931, they produced a design called Tea Room. (Very Art Deco, isn't it?)

A complete tableware set was made in this pattern as well as vases and candle holders. Tea Room was produced in pink, light green, and crystal - and a few pieces of amber.

The Indiana Glass Company closed in 2002 but Fenton Glass (Williamstown, West Virginia) purchased all of the glass molds. Sadly, Fenton closed their factory in late 2007, citing financial troubles. Tea Room depression glass is very collectible. Now when you see this at the flea market, you'll know the name of the pattern.
