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.

Barbara and Tom, I got your ideas, now i'm deleting our chat on Fiesta from this group since it is off topic.

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on December 14, 2015 at 12:01am

Barb, and others: There is a real easy way to tell old (real) DG from new (reproduced) DG.  By feel. An antique dealer friend showed me how in the 1980s. Take a known old piece and a new repro and gently stroke or feel them between your forefinger and thumb. Old DG feels soft and warm.  New DG feels cold and hard. Do it with your eyes shut and remember.  I can still touch a DG repro today and determine if it's real or new and so can you with a little practice. Saves a lot of time and money.

Barbara, I don't think I got to adding that group, but I sure need to!
Comment by Barbara E. Mauzy on December 13, 2015 at 8:30pm

I don't know why I thought you established that group ages ago. Yes, I would moderate that group if you still need someone. I know it's kind of "open enrollment" right now, so if no one else offers I will certainly help out.

I am so excited that you are continuing. Still need to add a Fiesta group...would you like that too?

I'm fine continuing.

For 2016..are the moderators of this group (Barbara and Ellene)  staying on ?

Comment by Barbara E. Mauzy on June 13, 2015 at 10:12pm

Federal did make blue Madrid in a handful of pieces and discerning the differences is a challenge, but possible.

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on June 13, 2015 at 3:38pm

Lillian,

DG Madrid was made in 1932-39 by Federal Glass Co.  "Recollection" (new name, same Madrid pattern) in blue was made in the 1980s by Indiana Glass Co.

Tendril. We do show this pattern in our most recent editions.
