GREEN DEPRESSION GLASS
GOOD TUESDAY MORNING TO YOU! This is my small collection
of green depression glass. I bought the pieces one at a time when they were still affordable in antique shops! I also have a small tumbler but tucked it away so it would not get broken and you know senior minds, I cannot remember where I put it - ha! I have a luncheon plate, a frog for flower stems, a salt and pepper holder, a relish dish and the orange juicer. I would love to have the salt and pepper shakers but in their absence, I use some faux pink depression glass shakers. I display my green glassware anywhere in my kitchen that I can. I love seeing it and it has had many sites there. I do not always use the doily but the white gives it such a nice background effect. Oops, forgot, I also have a candle stick holder which was on my dresser. Here 'tis!
The candlestick shows its density in the glass revealing a more brilliant green. There are swirls around the base and the cup is in the shape of a flower. This is really one of my treasured pieces.
Anyone out there that wants to share your own pieces of depression glass, please send me pictures, I would love to see them!
