I’ve been collecting depression glass from the 1930’s for several years now. I’m not really locked in to any particular pattern, just pink. Early on I noticed how the pinks seem to blend together even from different manufacturers. They’re not just pink either, most are a sort of a peachy color and seem to coordinate with reddish, orangish and brownish tones. Mix and match is a fabulous look.
I love how the pieces dress up a holiday table and make them seem even more festive. Try using dinner plates or serving platters for appetizer trays and cookies.
Teacups and saucers are great with ice cream or pudding, or even soup and dips instead of tea or coffee. Vintage glassware will have a new lease on life and your guests will love it.
Bowls and teacups look amazing with floating candles and can add atmosphere to a tablescape or just a dark corner.
Eighty years ago depression glass was distributed free in boxes of detergent or flour. Sometimes they were given away to people attending a movie. My, how times have changed. I’m glad there’s a new appreciation for these wonderful pieces.
