This green Depression Glass cream and sugar with the pretty Basket pattern was made by Indiana Glass and called "Lorain." Pattern No. 615, Lorain, is also known as "Basket" for its beautiful hanging basket design. A classic handled basket overflowing with floral vines is the central motif in this pretty mold. Each basket hangs from scrollwork and tassels with more scrolling garlands beneath the basket. The scrolls and garlands are on all four sides of each piece, with the basket motif on only the front and back of each.
Both the cream and sugar measure 4-3/8 inches tall and the creamer is 4-5/8 inches at the spout. The creamer measures 2-7/8 inches wide across the top, 5-inches across the handle and spout. The foot is 2-1/4 inches by 2-1/2 inches. The sugar measures 2-7/8 inches wide and 5-1/4 inches across the handles. The foot is also 2-1/4 inches by 2-1/2 inches.
Lorain was made by Indiana Glass from 1929 to 1932. It is not marked.
I make it a practice not to list damaged glass, but green Lorain is so difficult to find that this set had to be the exception to the rule. The creamer looks as though it has no damage, but it does have a 1/8-inch long, very shallow edge chip on the lip. This is easier felt than seen. As in much of Depression Glass, there is a small amount of normal mold-seam roughness. The sugar has a 3/8-inch by 1/8-inch chip along the inside top edge and another tiny nick in the corner.
This set is priced to reflect the condition. I'm so happy you stopped in to Maggie Belle's Memories! Please "Like" us on Facebook for updates and fun information!
