Lorain Basket Footed Bowl, Compote
Lorain avocado green Champagne/Tall Sherbet. Lorain was produced from 1929 to 1932 in both green and yellow. The mold edges tend to be rough and is part of the manufacturing process so don't let that deter you. Lorain was made by Indiana Glass, however, in the 1950ís, the footed sherbet with an open lace edge was produced in milk glass and avocado for use as a florist bowls, colors not made during the depression. These were most likely made by Anchor Hocking instead of Indiana, who produced Lorain originally.
This stately bowl is of a light green glass, in very good condition. The sides each have a basket under a scrolled 'cornice' with vines surrounding each basket.
