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.

From a Glorious Tablescape Event: "There’s nothing depressing about this beautiful Depression Glass table …"

Hi, Depression Glass Friends ~ As the holidays approach, please consider taking pictures of your table settings to share with all of us here. Also, here's a special request just because it's fall: if you have any amber or orange (fired-on?) glassware, this would be a great time to share some pictures.

Very Pretty Ellene - I love the "ships" pattern! I have the drinking set along with the ice bucket - Just love it with the red and white!

You always do such a nice job with displays! Happy Forth of July! :)

I'm into yellow roses this time of year. So, I think Katherine's tablescape is lovely!

Would love to see photos of blue Depression glass, do you have any in our collection?
Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on March 4, 2013 at 12:36pm

My point exactly.  I called them "c" handles, you call them "little round handles".

I said that Anchor Hocking made Forest Green which is BOTH  a pattern name and a color but they didn't make any with "little round handles" nor did they make punch bowls.

AH Forest Green was made from 1950-1957, according to my reference books. (Florence, Warman's, Lyle, and 2 Schroeders).

Barb, I'm only discussing AH Forest Green.  When you slip "other players and factories" into it you are no longer discussing the same thing.  Likewise on the Fire King remark.

One can see that the AH Forest Green color is lighter, more bluer than the dark green of the punch bowl and cups with c-shaped handles.

I believe the punch bowl set is from a later time frame, but it could be of the same era as you say.

Comment by Barbara E. Mauzy on March 4, 2013 at 8:06am

Forest Green was primarily a 1950s color, but you can find pieces that predate 1950. It is common embraced by the DG community with a DG label for several reasons, the most important one is ease. The glass was made by the same players/factories as DG under the same low-quality-control standards. The punch cups had little round handles, not D handles as seen on Fire-King mugs.
