So, I have another collection to show you. I know, it's like my 100th collection. And when I collect something, I go all out! This is just a very small sampling of my Depression Glass collection. If you don't know, Depression Glass is glass from the great depression. It was given away at gas stations and stuff as a prize when you spent so much money, or gathered enough green stamps at the grocery store, stuff like that. And, this glass is beautiful! There are tons of patterns, and millions of collectors. I have several different patterns that I collect, and I also collect kitchen glass. Remember that I just moved, so my collection is all stored everywhere. I did, however, keep the special glass that I keep in a cabinet marked separately, and I have put it out. My cabinet is another story, maybe I'll explain how I got that and what I did to it another day. Today, I am showing the shelf that has my favorite pink glass pieces!
This is a picture of the shelf that holds the pink glass. There are plates, that are called "Jubilee blanks". That means that they were made fancy by using a machine wheel to make the etching on the plates. Jubilee isn't usually wheel cut, so these are really special. on the left in the front is a mayonnaise bowl with ladle, that is etched the same way. The little glasses are also matching. My fav!!
This is a butter dish, in the "Miss America" pattern. I also have a bowl. I just think it is sooo pretty!
Now this is one of my absolute favorites!! It is another mayonnaise bowl, with plate and ladle, in the "Lotus" pattern. VERY hard to find!! I have many Lotus pieces, in different colors. Fabulous!
So, why did I say "Pink?" in my title. I am not the best photographer, as I've said before, and this glass is very translucent, so with the wood background, it almost doesn't look pink to me! Not sure what color it looks like to you, but tell me what you think!
AND, if anyone else collects depression glass, and knows more about it than I do, Please tell me! I know I am not the authority on this subject. If I've named a wrong pattern or something, fill me in! And tell me where I can find you, so I can see your glass!!
Have fun visiting all of Beverly's party participants!!
