Today is the Letter D for Depression Glass
I am by no means any kind of an expert on Depression Glass but I do love it and have collected a few pieces. My first love was the cobalt blue and I found this piece on ebay
This is a candy dish in the Mt. Pleasant or "Double Shield" pattern
Made by L.E. Smith Glass Co 1920's -1934
This plate is also in the same pattern along with this creamer
This piece has a silver band but has faded with time
The pattern of the above creamer & sugar is called MODERNTONE made by Hazel-Atlas Glass Co 1934-1942 & late 1940's - early 1950's. This pattern seems to have some of the most reasonable prices maybe due to it's simple style.
These pink & one green pieces are random thrift store finds
I believe they are all depression glass and not reproductions, but I am not sure. Like I said NOT an expert or even all that knowledgeable.
I love the edge of this compote
A couple of glasses with different patterns
One piece of green again found in a thrift shop
I have not had the time to research all the patterns of the pink and green glass but when I do I will use this book. I got mine from Amazon.com and there is a newer addition now. I have found this to be an amazing resource. There are so many patterns and colors to learn about.
