Do You Love Depression Glass ?

I do ! I do !

I don't know what attracts me to the depression glass but it just jumps out at me where ever I go.

Depression glass is highly collectible. I know this because my own collection can become a bit overwhelming sometimes and I have to clear out some of it to make room for more !

There were many companies and many different patterns made, some that have never been catalogued.

Here is a list of some of the companies that made depression glass right through into the 1950's and 60's.

* Jeanette Glass Co.,
* Indiana Glass Co.,
* Hazel Atlas Glass Co.,
* Imperial Glass Co.,
* Hocking Glass Co.,
* Federal Glass Co.,
* U.S. Glass Co.,
* Lancaster Glass Co.,

And the list goes on.

There was also Elegant Glassware from the depression era.

* Cambridge Glass Co.
* Fostoria Glass Co.
* Heisey Glass Co.
* Imperial Glass Co.
* Tiffin Glass Co.
* Paden City Glass Co.
* Duncan & Miller Glass Co.

And again, many more not mentioned.

If you are going to begin collecting depression glassware, I highly recommend that you purchase some books so you can get to know the different makers and patterns.

Now I love to look at my collection like anyone else, but I realized years ago that if it is not Museum quality or worth thousands of dollars then why not just use it and enjoy it? So today, I have mine on display but when company comes over I use it proudly.

Don't forget that depression glassware are not dishwasher or microwave safe.

Here are a few depression glass Items I have listed now in my ETSY Shop !
