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.

That confirms what I have found in my UK collection...thanks for sharing

Comment by Old Time Glass on June 23, 2016 at 8:01pm

I just checked my info too, and it says the pieces with ground bases are being found in England and Canada (rare in the US) & often indicates an earlier production run. They are lighter green, slightly paneled, and the pieces are the vases, rose bowls, flat pitchers and flat tumblers. Green cups have ground bottoms, are slightly footed, and the base fo the cup is larger than the normally found saucer indentation. From Depression Glass, 16th Edition, Gene & Cathy Florence, pg 80 (2004)

Sorry should read 5.5"..

Comment by Angela Evans on June 23, 2016 at 7:21pm

Thanks for that info Tom ...I have two of the pitchers the 5.52 and the 8" :)

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on June 22, 2016 at 9:26pm

My info is dated 1983.  States that ground bases were from England. Also said USA dealers shipped containers full back to the states.

There are 3 pitchers, 5.5", 8", and 10.25.  The rarest is the small one.  In 1983 it was priced at $450.  The 8" was $26.50, and the big one was $170.

Aah, I see what you mean. I can't remember straight away if any of my pieces are ground based or not. I'll take a peak tonight when I get done with email. Super nice collection! Isn't it a great pattern? One of my favs! :) 

Comment by Angela Evans on June 22, 2016 at 8:16pm

Only that they are paler in colour than others although they are very bright uranium under UV and the milk pitcher and cups have a ground base...the pair of vases in particular are very pale lime green...the only one I can compare it to is the Cone shaped pitcher which is a darker green.

Comment by vicki hufstetler on June 22, 2016 at 7:59pm

I have a small collection too Angela, but mine are the pink. I don't have much time lately, but I could look in my books, for shapes if that would help at all?

Do you find any oddities among the shapes you have found, vs USA market?

Comment by Angela Evans on June 22, 2016 at 6:32pm

I have been discussing these items all found in the UK with another group of collectors and some are of the opinion they were made for the British market and the colour differs from US pieces also some have ground bases like Elegant glass...this milk pitcher has a finely ground base for example...any thoughts on these theories please ??
