Indiana Glass History






Garland or Tear Drop Compotes

Blue Carnival Garland or Tear Drop Compote

Indiana Glass marketed the above compote as Garland.  It said Garland right on the box and appeared in numerous Indiana Glass catalogs as Garland. Please don't confuse this with the actual Indiana Glass Garland pattern.  Click here to see the Garland pattern.  

My thoughts on this...........I think Indiana Glass meant Garland as more of a decorative term rather than a pattern name. Like garnish or garland on a tree. When Indiana Glass made this bowl and marketed it through Tiara, it was called the Decorator. It is just a decorative bowl.  It is a stand alone item, no matching pieces.  

Most collectors refer to this as the Tear Drop Compote and it is actually not the Teardrop pattern either.  But calling it a Tear Drop Compote makes much more sense than calling it Garland.  

Indiana Glass made this compote throughout the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's.  It was made in a wide variety of colors. Below are some of the colors produced over the years.
