Indiana Glass made some lovely patterns with unusual designs and rich detail. One of these is Lorain, also called "Basket" for its central motif of a basket of flowers suspended from a swag. It's truly a lovely design. Here it is in green, showing the cup. Notice how the piece is square-ish.I don't have many photos of yellow Lorain. This one shows the creamer in the window at an antique shop. (The cups are S pattern by MacBeth Evans and the creamer on the right side in back is Horseshoe.) You can see the design well in both these pieces. All pieces are square-ish. Plates have the basket design on the corners, scrolls on the rim sides and an intricate medallion with scrolls in the center. Indiana made full dinnerware sets in yellow and green plus tumblers and sherbets. Indiana didn't make a plethora of serving pieces, only creamers and sugars, relish tray, platter, oval vegetable bowl and 8 inch bowl. I've seen creamers and sugars and relish trays several times but the bowls are scarce. As true for several Indiana Glass patterns the seams are often rough with little bits of extra glass. This is from the molding process, manufacturing flaws. Nonetheless, Lorain is a gorgeous pattern that sets into an appealing table.
