This large, green Depression Glass berry bowl in the Number 612 "Horseshoe" line by Indiana is becoming quite scarce. A five-petal flower on a leafy stem alternates with an arching scroll design, loosely resembling a horseshoe shape, which gives the pattern its nickname. The design is molded into the glass and stands out beautifully in large scale on this bowl. The bottom of the bowl has a four-lobed flower and shield motif.
This attractive bowl measures 9-1/4 inches in diameter and 3-inches deep.
Horseshoe was made by Indiana Glass from 1930 to 1933. The bowl is not marked.
As is common in vintage glassware, there are expected surface scratches. There is also a tiny 3/8-inch crack that runs the width of the rim. It does not come down into the side of the bowl. The visibility of this damage is relative to the viewing angle, and it is truly not a major distraction in this hard to find bowl.
