A Time Remembered

Circa: 1950
Condition: Used
Manufacturer: Unmarked
This beautiful amber colored open sugar bowl in the Kings Crown Thumbprint Pattern has no makers mark.
King's Crown was originally known as Thumbprint. It was first made by US Glass Company in the late 1800s. Tiffin Glass picked up the line after that and made it through the 1960s.
In the 1970s, Indiana Glass bought the molds and began making it, although they made slight changes to the pattern. To confuse the matter even more, over 20 glass companies have made similar patterns through the years. The pieces made by Indiana may also be called pattern number 77, American Crown and Thumbprint.
According to Gene Florence's Collectible Glassware from the 40s, 50s, 60s, the Tiffin molds had more elongated thumbprints, while the Indiana ones were more circular. Also the Tiffin King's Crown tumblers were flared at the top and the ones made by Indiana were straight, and the Tiffin plates have starred designs in the center, while the Indiana ones do not.
Obviously, the pieces made earlier by Tiffin are more valuable that the later pieces made by Indiana Glass.
It would look pretty with a tealite candle in it as well as a sugar bowl.
In very good + condition without chips, cracks or fleabites it measures 2 1/4 inches tall, 3 7/8 inches across the ruffled rim and 3 1/2 inches across the base.
An addition to any Amber Glass, Sugar Bowl or Kings Crown Thumbprint Pattern Collection.
