The King’s Crown or Thumbprint patterned glass was made by both Indiana Glass Co. and Tiffin. This set of four wine goblets was made by Indiana Glass since it has two mold marks. The stemware made by Tiffin has three mold marks. The pattern was originally called Excelsior when it was manufactured by Adams Glass Co. in the late 1800s. In the mid to late 1960s, Indiana Glass was making this popular pattern in amber, olive green, smoky blue and milk glass. They continued to make it into the 1990s. The wine glasses are 4 ¼” tall and 2 ½” across the top. One glass has a scratch on the smooth upper part of the bowl which I tried to photograph but it did not show up in the picture. There is something black inside the glass on the foot of one of the stems that happened during the manufacturing process (pictured in the last photo). There are no chips or cracks.
These are priced as a set of four.
