  • Pattern:  Recollection Amber (Federal Glass - Madrid Pattern)*
  • Made in USA by Indiana Glass Company
  • Vintage 1980's
  • Details:  *PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE EXPLANATION AND REVIEW PICTURES BEFORE MAKING YOUR PURCHASE.  According to "The Depression Glass Collectors Encyclopedia" 18th edition, the original maker of this pattern was Federal Glass, made as "Madrid" from 1932-1939.  In 1976, for the Bicentennial Celebration, Federal Glass re-issued the "Madrid" pattern, re-naming it "Recollection" and added an embossed '76 on the pieces.  However, in 1980, when Federal Glass went out of business, Indiana Glass purchased the 1976 molds and removed the date.  The Sugar Bowl (open, no lid) is one of the items known to have been reproduced.  Depression Glass Collectors and experts can tell the subtle differences between the old and new, however, we are neither, therefore, we have taken several pictures that should help anyone, looking specifically for the 1930's pieces, make a determination.  We believe these to be Indiana Glass, but if it turns out it's Federal Glass, then you got a great deal, these amber pieces are getting harder to find!  If you're looking to replace your broken sugar bowl, hopefully this piece will bring you great joy.  Would look nice as kitchen decor, fall decor and we even liked how it looks floating a single flower!

Depression glass is clear or colored translucent machine made glassware that was distributed free, or at low cost, in the United States and Canada around the time of the Great Depression starting in the 1920's but continued past the depression into the 1950's.   Food manufacturers and distributors put a piece of glassware in boxes of food, as an incentive to purchase. Some movie theaters, gas stations and other businesses handed out pieces as a thank you for shopping at their establishment.
