Whitehall and American Whitehall
Whitehall or American Whitehall - 1975 Indiana Glass Catalog
Indiana Glass introduced the Whitehall pattern in the early 1960's. This is Indiana Glass pattern number 521. Whitehall is VERY similar to the Fostoria American pattern. Whitehall is most often seen in the above colors, gold or amber, crystal and olive green. There is also a very pretty light blue, a teal blue and crystal with ruby stain. In the 1980's, the Whitehall candy box was made in blue and green carnival glass. See pictures below.
American Whitehall is a bit confusing. Lancaster Colony purchased the Fostoria Company in the early 1980's. From what I understand, the Whitehall pattern is Indiana Glass molds. The American Whitehall pattern was produced after the Fostoria purchase and the American Whitehall pattern was produced using actual Fostoria molds. Thus the name change to American Whitehall. So Whitehall was produced from the early 1960's to the early 1980's using Indiana molds. American Whitehall was produced or I should say reproduced, using the Fostoria American pattern molds. Yep, confusing..................
Please see below for some examples of the American Whitehall. As far as I can determine, the American Whitehall colors are crystal, gold or amber, blue, and peach. Please note the differences between the Whitehall and American Whitehall patterns shown below.
