Pink Depression Glass

Depression glass is glassware created during the Great Depression in both clear glass and several different colors. It was often quite inexpensive and even given away as premiums. In time these pieces of glass have become quite collectible. And pink is the probably the most sought after color.

I started collecting pink Depression glass while in junior high school. My first pieces were the Tearoom cream and sugar bowl from the Indiana Glass Company, produced from 1926 to 1931. These had belonged to my Great Grandmother. I later was also given a bowl that had belonged to her, one of my favorite pieces. I still don't have the slightest idea who made it, or when. It may be slightly older, perhaps the 1920's, as it has a very art deco design. The end of it shows in the bottom left corner of the photo to the left, next to the Oyster and Pearl candlestick holder. It may be a fruit or banana bowl.
