Meet Your Co-Moderators, Author Barbara E. Mauzy And Ellene Meece

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.

Ellene Meece is an antique/collectible marketer and organizer of people, products and possibilities in this vast world of Collectible Treasures. Her story involves being educated in antiques and collectibles through her mother who owned and operated a large antique and collectible store in Yukon, Oklahoma on Route 66 and then inheriting her inventory of endless antiques and collectibles after her unexpected passing. Ellene was determined to find a positive path forward to share these treasures with others and thus built an online business through her website - www.grandmastreasuresonline.com. She also writes for her own blog - www.collectibletreasuresblog.com

I see, my glasses. Just tested them, no uranium oxide in them. Only the stems are green, the upper part is clear with iridiscense. Thank you for comment. I think I have a picture of them.

I keep thinking of more things to say. Newer pieces of Fenton use an oval-shaped foil label that is glued to the bottom. They come off if washed. When they come off they leave an oval-shape of residue on the glass. This can be seen if the bottom is viewed at an angle and will let you know that it is Fenton.

Elleene, I saw a complete set of Pyramid at an Estate sale this past summer. It was sold by the piece. In over 20 years collecting that is the only Pyramid I've ever seen. It hate it when people break up sets to make a few extra bucks...

Thanks Vicky..Have been To Fenton and they did whole series of figurenines like My Blue girl. They even had one, and I wrote to them and asked when it was made and they told me they were made and then all them would have markings on them. my girl is more detailed than the Fenton one and has no markings at all. That is why it is such a mystery of "what" she is. Fenton's mold is so close...yet you can see the subte differences between the 2. In my picture her Bonnet and neck is more detailed than in the Fenton mold, but man they sure are close...but NO markings. Fenton said it would not be theirs if there was no markings on it ..So I am still wondering for sure ?????

What green ones? Did I miss a picture? BTW I think your "footed tumbler" is a vase. Seems to be too tall and wide at mouth for a tumbler. Presently on eBay there are several Fenton vases shaped like yours, but not exactly. Those that sell are going for $20. or less (USD)

I'm so happy you started this group! Depression Glass is such a big, big world and could be divided into it's own hundreds of sub-categories!

My site has a few depression glass items including the pretty pink "Old Cafe" and "Oyster and Pearl" patterns. But, I love this Glass Relish Tray with handles and four compartments. "Pyramid" Pattern.

Do a search under Fenton Bo Peep, or girl and see if you have your answer? I'm not sure, but it does look like a Fenton.
Comment by Cleta Blair on December 28, 2009 at 2:02pm
I have done a lot of searching for my little blue girl, but so far have not found any answers to what she is . She has no markings on her at all as far as any artists stamps etc

Tasmania - New Zealand? That explains alot. You see Austrailia has it's own "Depression Glass" some of which is new. They are particularly bad at reproducing Carnival glass patterns. I think some of the American Molds have ended up there. If so, your vase is not American Depression glass.

I have been collecting depression glass since the 1980s. My first piece was a 48 oz straight sides cobalt blue Royal Lace pitcher. I still have it, but in all that time I've only seen a few other pieces and all were cracked or chipped. I don't have any sets, but lots of this and that, a few of those, a stack of them. I found 3"circle" water glasses, same, exact design, weird green color with irridesence. I wrote Gene Florence and e-mail and he said he'd never seen anything like them (the color). I don't know what to do with them...
I can't help myself, I pick up every piece of DG at yard sales.
