History of Tiara Glassware

Tiara Glass, which operated for 28 years, was marketed by Tiara Exclusives located in Dunkirk , Indiana . The marketing was accomplished through home parties held by distributors or sales agents between the years of 1970 to 1998.

Tiara Exclusives' offices were next door to Indiana Glass Company. Both of these companies were owned by Lancaster Colony corp. Indiana glass manufactured a large volume of glassware for Tiara. Indiana Glass Company closed in 1989. Tiara glass was also manufactured by Fenton Art Glass and L. E. Smith.

The only markings on Tiara glassware was a paper label. T were some molds which had the Tiara name within the piece and on some of the baskets at the base of the handle; initials were used to identify the experienced person involved with the making of the item.
