What is Depression Glass?

From the late-20's through the early '40s, manufacturers such as Federal Glass, MacBeth-Evans, and Hocking Glass brought a little cheer into some very dreary days by manufacturing the product we now know as Depression glass. This mass-produced molded glassware was of relatively poor quality -- often exhibiting air bubbles, heavy mold marks, and other flaws in the glass -- yet it came in beautiful colors and patterns to suit every taste.

The most popular colors with collectors today are pink in varying hues (some are very light in color, while others have an orange tint to the pink), cobalt blue, and green. Depression glass was also made in amber, iridescent, opaque white known as Mon-ax, and several other colors as well. Some of the most popular patterns buyers seek today are Cameo, Mayfair, American Sweetheart, Princess and Royal Lace.
Even the pattern names alluded to better times and a longing for the glamorous lifestyles of the 1920s.

    I have one of these, but it’s green. These are so cool. So many uses, mine holds little aloe plants.
