Federal Glass Madrid Indiana Glass Recollection
Madrid was reissued in amber in 1976 by the Federal Glass Company. These pieces are marked with the date mixed in the pattern. Reissued Madrid is over 30 years old and has its own following today. This New Madrid was called "Recollection" and issued to celebrate the American Bicentennial.
In the 1980's
Indiana made Madrid in crystal, pink, and blue. Most of the molds used
were changed drastically. Tumblers, shakers, candlesticks, and the cake
plate do not even remotely resemble the older pieces. The dinner plate,
oval bowl, flat soups, cup and saucers, and butter dish molds do have
mold differences, but they are harder to detect. The colors though are a
dead give-away. The blue is much brighter then the old blue color and
the pink is a washed out version of the old.
