I thought it would be fun to look at patterns from Indiana Glass. I posted before about Lorain, one of Indiana’s most recognized and collected depression patterns. See here, here, for posts about Lorain’s beautiful design with baskets and swags made in green, yellow and clear and here for a table set with this gorgeous depression pattern.
This next pattern is Loganberry. I find most of Indiana’s patterns to be distinctive with rich detail and consistent, careful design. Loganberry fits this.
Indiana Glass made Loganberry first in clear in the 1920s, then later in amber, olive green and carnival in the 1970s. They made some in a teal color too, but I don’t know when.
Here is the amber small bowl, linked from Replacements. They call it a bon bon.
The piece I showed at the top is considered a grill plate because it is divided into thirds, but it is much smaller than most grill plates, more a luncheon size. Here is the teal grill plate. I have not seen this color in person.
The olive/avocado green color is fairly common and you might see it at any antique mall.
Loganberry suffers from a lack of pieces. Indiana made only three, the small grill plate, the small bon bon triangular bowl and a salad plate, about 7 inches across that looks like the grill plate without dividers.
It’s too bad there are not more pieces as Loganberry is attractive with its strong relief design, eye-catching and pleasing to hold.
You might have to look a while to find enough Loganberry to set a small dessert table, but it won’t break your bank. Most pieces are $10-15 (including shipping) and it’s moderately available online.
As is typical for most early Indiana glass, watch for protruding seams that feel rough even without any damage. If the rough seams bother you then it’s best to look for a different pattern as most Loganberry pieces that we’ve had have had a bit of roughness.
I hope you enjoy reading about one of Indiana’s less well-known patterns!
