The Indiana Glass Company began as part of the Ohio Flint Glass Company which was later sold to the National Glass Company. They officially became Indiana Glass Company in 1907. They produced a wide variety of glass items in a wide array of colors. The Indiana Carnival (Iridescent) is probably the most popular. In 1983 Lancaster Colony purchased the company. Lancaster Colony closed the factory in 2002. I have many pieces/colors of the Indiana Thumbprint line.
