Tiara Glass

Tiara Exclusives began operation on July 1, 1970, in Dunkirk, Indiana. Tiara Exclusives was strictly a retail company, they did not manufacture any glass. Indiana Glass had the hand shops. Tiara bought most of their product from Indiana Glass. Tiara sold and shipped glass, but they did not manufacture glass. Tiara Glass products are heavier glass and very sturdy and useable for everyday use to enhance the beauty of any table setting. Tiara Glass was sold at house parties in the 70's.

Exploring art glass, carnival, depression glass and others, including history and general information is my goal. We will explore companies such as Anchor Hocking, Blenko, Cambridge, Duncan Miller, Fenton and many other companies.

I sell glassware on ebid.net visit my auction listings; http://us.ebid.net/perl/account.cgi?mo=account-pending

My goal is to share a little glass history, fun facts and general information about beautiful glass and pottery with the new and older generations of the world. I will do my best to promote the appreciation and use of beautiful glassware in our homes and for display.

The content of this blog will come from the many books I read and internet research performed. I will endeavor to make the information in this blog interesting, understandable and fun for everyone to learn about how glass was made and how different companies came to be formed.
