About Depression Glass

Depression glassware was specifically created to fill a void in the life of the American housewife. Pretty little decorative touches were impossible for most people to afford in this era. A few companies stepped up and created lines of tabletop glassware specifically for the hardest hit American families. Simultaneously cheerful, pretty, and useful, these pieces of glassware were produced and sold very cheaply. They were sold at grocery stores, and even at movie theatres on specially promoted 'dish nights,' or were given away at the service station or inside boxes of laundry soap. Most pieces cost between a nickel and a dime apiece.Typically, they were made to be sturdy--after all, they did need to survive those laundry boxes. But they did have delicate names, which were evocative of glamorous times and glamorous people. Many of the most popular patterns names were Princess, Mayfair, American Sweetheart, and Royal Lace.Some of the most popular makers of depression glass were Jeanette, Anchor Hocking, Federal Glass, and MacBeth-Evans. Obviously, Depression glass wasn't called such during the time. Rather, it was oftentimes referred to as 'carnival glass' which came in bright and cheerful colors. 'Milk glass' was another popular Depression-era glass type, as were 'satin glass', 'uranium glass' and 'pressed glass.' Today, all these examples of Depression glass are highly collectible--especially since real pieces are so very hard to find. Reproductions are rampant, and it takes a highly skilled eye to tell the good forgeries apart from the originals. However, authenticity aside, many of these pieces are charming regardless of their origins. Even years later, Depression glassware manages to accomplish its original goal: deliver a little cheer to a simply and sweetly made table.
