Tiara glassware, manufactured by the Indiana Glass Company of Dunkirk, Indiana, was sold at home parties from 1970 to 1999. Original prices averaged from $10 to $60 per piece, making the glassware popular as an alternative to higher-priced depression glass because of its similar coloring and pressed glass patterns.
