A Note From Author Barbra E. Mauzy
Often free with the purchase of a good or service, colorful Depression Glass dinnerware has adorned American tables since the late 1920s. This group is dedicated to preserving the history and joy of this vintage American treasure produced by companies such as Hazel-Atlas, Federal, Anchor Hocking, Jeannette, and McKee.

Hi, Mary! Green is not green. Not only are there differences between companies as explained by Vicki, but there were daily differences, too. Quality control was not a concern when creating glass that would be sold for mere pennies. These inconsistencies are true with other colors as well.

Thanks Vicki!  My family thinks I am crazy, "Green is green, what's the big deal?"  Here folks understand me!

Hi Barbara!

Just an open comment: I love seeing the chit-chat within the group! You guys are terrific!

Mary, Yes there are other names for all different shades of depression era glass. Usually it is the company that named "their" versions of each color. For Instance, Heisey Glass Co. ( a maker of Elegant Depression glass) had very specific names for unusual colors like "Flamingo" - Their pink color, "Marigold" for their Yellow, "Moongleam" Their version of green, and etc..

Here is an ebay listing for a Moongleam Luncheon plate by Heisey: http://www.ebay.com/sch/sis.html?_kw=2+Elegant+Glass+Heisey+Moongle...

TUTORIAL:  Simple way to convert inches to millimeters is go to Google and type: (for example)   6.75 inches =  ?mm

or  10km = ?miles

or  37.50 GBP = $

or  22 knots = ? miles

or most any conversion you want.

When I read in the Depression Glass Books, the colors items were produced in are listed.  What I  have never seen is whether there are different names for the different shades of light green.  Does anybody ever differentiate, or is it obvious when you know the maker?

WOW....that was a good find !! thanks

Comment by Donna Cook on June 3, 2014 at 6:14pm

WOOT WOOT Angelia - that's great!  Thanks Vicki for the info on the value.   

Comment by vicki hufstetler on June 3, 2014 at 6:12pm

Hi Angela, My Book by Ms. Mauzy is from 2001, so this info is certainly dated. But here, If I've got it right it reads: "Crystal 3 footed flared vase, $500 with frog, $950. 6.75" (inches - sorry I don't know metric) 8-sided vase $450".

So I don't know which is which, but I think you have both of them don't you? Hope this helps ya! I must say I'm jealous of all the fabulous glass you find over there! :)

Comment by Angela Evans on June 3, 2014 at 6:02pm

Thanks Vicki and Mary....I have no idea how much it is valued in Barbara's book...can someone let me know please as I have been unable to find another one on sale or sold for a comparison.
