A Haven for Vee
Tuesday, April 28, 2009
Indiana Custard - (1933-1935) Indiana Custard was made for only two years. It was made by the Indiana Glass Company. Indiana Custard must have been extremely popular during this period because you see quite a few pieces of this pattern today. Indiana Custard came only in Custard or Ivory indictive of its name. The only extremely hard to find pieces are the sherbets, salad plates, and luncheons. They were probably sold as an addition to a boxed set and not as part of one. This pretty set goes with almost any decor and would be fun to collect. ~Source
That's an understatement for this gal. I recently turned an aisle at the local flea market and stumbled right into a table laden with these amazing dishes. The color is so rich and yes, I'll say it — delicious. Each dinner plate is selling for $38 so it is unlikely that this set will ever grace my home. But oh to have dishes that are so elegant and able to fit in anywhere. Do any of you have this collection? Have you ever seen it?

For those of you who arrived here today hoping for a recipe, I hate to disappoint. This one for Custard Bread Pudding is great and it hails from Indiana!
I did buy a teacup and saucer for only $2.52. It was badly stained from having actually served as a teacup, but cleaned up well. It's featured in the center. (You can click on the photo to see it better.)
Enjoy your Tuesday...

Oh Vee, those are lovely!! I had never heard of this pattern before now.ReplyDelete
I love how you have your pretty floral tea cups displayed on the old frame. You are just full of good ideas:-)
I did not know about that pattern. I like it...but my friend, Beverly, would swoon if she saw it. She loves white or cream dishes. Until knowing her I had no idea you could have so many white things that looked so different.ReplyDelete
Your teacups are adorable.
The dishes are lovely Vee. Did I tell you how much I like the way you hang your beautiful teacups from ribbon? It's very pretty. Thank you for the recipe. I hope you have a happy day ♥ReplyDelete
What a lovely pattern. And that color is gorgeous. I am addicted to dishes. Beautiful.ReplyDelete
Oh Vee!This is beautiful.I love the tea cups!Have a very blessed day!ReplyDelete

Be sure you stop by my blog tomorrow as I'm having a special giveaway and don't want you to miss it!
OT ~~ Help Vee! ~~ I don't know which is your now-correct e-mail addy.ReplyDelete
I have 2, for you. So I tried sending my email, to you, to both of them.
The dishes look lovely. Everything looks so appetizing when served on a white plate and those would add a more delicious flavor to the dishes being served. I have never seen this pattern. Happy Tuesday!ReplyDelete
It is such a pretty pattern. This is something that I DO NOT collect. Maybe it's time to start! :-)ReplyDelete
Ha, yes, I totally was thinking you were going to give a custard recipe. :-) And so I am glad you covered your bases there. Those are sure beautiful dishes!ReplyDelete
I think I've seen those Indiana Custard dishes before, but I couldn't tell you where. They are pretty, I guess I thought they were some kind of milkglass or something when I saw them. Ya learn somethin' ever' day, doncha?ReplyDelete
Very pretty dishes, I can see how they could fit into many different decors!ReplyDelete
I love your new tea cup and how you display them!
Have a wonderful day!
No, I've not heard of this. So pretty. It reminds me of "milk glass". My Mom had several pieces, which sis and I now have. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing! Happy Tuesday!
What lovely glassware! I do not have anything nearly that stunning gracing my table.ReplyDelete
And yes, I was hoping for a custard recipe! LOL! Foiled again!
What pretty dishes! I have never heard of the pattern, either. They certainly would make a pretty table setting.ReplyDelete
I love your frame and teacups, too.
I have the same tea cup with saucer that you have shown us in the middle. Love the dishes but at $38.00 a plate they would not be gracing my table either. But a girl can dream.
Enjoy your day,
I like the name...and like the dishes...and I've never heard of them before.ReplyDelete
Now I'm off to check out the recipe for Indiana Custard...that sounds good too!
Oh my goodness, those plates are fantastic!ReplyDelete
Beautiful! And I don't think I've ever seen this! I'll be on the lookout now! Thanks!ReplyDelete
The Indian Custard dishes are quite gorgeous - simple and beautiful.ReplyDelete

I've never seen or perhaps never paid much attention to the beautiful Indiana custard dishes, I can always count on learning something new when I visit Mizz Vee.ReplyDelete
A wonderful day to you!

Since you want let me comment on todays post, I will comment on the custard dishes. Until today I had never seen nor heard, of Indiana Custard. And I see that I have missed out on something very beautiful. I will be looking more closely at white and cream colored dishes from now on.
I am always so glad to find and learn new things.
Oh! When I saw the title I was the one or one of
those who thought they were going to get a custard
recipe today!! Always enjoy visiting you!
