This console bowl is gorgeous with its raised flowers hand painted with lovely blue and gold.
I identified it as Dogwood by Lancaster based on the candle holders and the candle holder reference book Glass Candle Holders of the Depression (Schiffer Book for Collectors) by Sherry Riggs and Paula Pendergrass. They show this candle holder in several variations, pink, blue and frosted clear, plus single flowers and flower blocks. They are exquisite.
Besides the blue, I’ve had the console set in pink and a torte plate in pink. They are even prettier in person than in the photo!
I’ve been curious about these as none of my books that cover Lancaster Glass include any of these pieces. Riggs and Pendergrass’ book shows several other Lancaster candle holders that are from the 1920s-early 1930s, but this set just didn’t quite fit the same look.
I finally got my answer when we had this basket. One member of my glass group said it was Indiana.
When I see “Lancaster Glass” I immediately think of the depression era glass company that made our lovely Jubilee and Cane Landrum, but there is another glass company with the word Lancaster in its name, Lancaster Colony. Lancaster Colony was the parent company of Indiana Glass until 2002, and it is still in business today mostly making specialty food packaging.
More evidence that Lancaster Colony is the right “Lancaster”, Replacements shows several colors of Dogwood including this spectacular deep bowl with blue flowers.
So yes, my console bowls and candle holders were Lancaster, Lancaster Colony that is. Mystery solved!
