PINK SATURDAY DONE GREEN, AND A PARTY TOO!!

Happy Pink Saturday!  Thanks for visiting me today.  This week Beverly from "How Sweet the Sound" is changing things up a bit.  She is having Green Saturday, in honor of St. Patddy's  Day!  So, this week, I've pulled out one of my favorite depression glass sets.  It is only a few pieces, but I LOVE them.  The pattern is "avocado" or "sweet pear".  The plates have 2 pears on them, and the glass around them is all in a leaf pattern, even around the  edges.  I had to search the ends of the earth for these few pieces.  I've found a few others, but couldn't afford them!  So, here it is.
Forgive the awful pictures.  This is the whole set, including 5 little Vaseline glass "Lotus" pattern salts.  They would put these at each place setting for individual servings of salt for each person.

Another bad picture of a footed bowl.

A better picture of a different bowl.

Now this is a good picture!!  This is a close up of the salts.  See how they glow?  You can tell if it's Vaseline glass if you put it under "Black Light".  I have done this to be sure it is authentic, and it is, HOWEVER, I'm not sure if it is real or reproduction.

Please remember, I am not the authority on Depression Glass, and if anyone has different answers or ideas, just let me know!!


Now, on to the party!
Marilou at Lulus Lovlies is having a party at her other blog Heartful Creatiions The 15th is her blogaversary!  Here's what Marilou says:

  8. What a great collection of Vaseline glass. I am not sure that there was reproductions made as it was originally made with uranium which is now illegal to use. It is the uranium that makes it glow.

    HPS!!

    HUGS,

  12. Hi Daniella, I don't know what it is, but I love green. Green anything and this depression glass is just fresh and beautiful. I have never heard of avocado or pear, but they are just so pretty with the leaf edges and the pears.
    Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  13. I guess I didn't read the instructions.... LOL, but oh well. I love my pink, but I do like green. Did you create your blog yourself??? I love it, did I already tell you that?? I am so out of it. I have been so busy. Sorry I didn't answer back last week, just been one of those weeks. Thanksfully my husband went back to work and its been a little crazy, but good. I have not submitted any artwork to anyone this last week, just to crazy. So I will have to go and see what it was you were referring too. Take Care and have a wonderful week.

    Hugs & Warm Wishes, CindyLew
