Ok, Glass Hounds! These are very well known Glasses. They are elegant depression. I have been trying to collect the whole set for years, but the prices just kept getting higher. These are the cordial size. There are actually 7 different sizes of these, plus many other pieces made in the same pattern. Who can tell me the pattern name and maker? I will give you a few days. Then I will provide the answer! Also: Do you like this format or no? Please vote. If you don't I won't do it any longer and will just provide the info. Thanks for your participation. Vicki

Hi Everyone! Happy New Year! I guess everyone was too busy to decipher the pieces I put up for you, so I will just give you the info on them. Both of these pieces are Elegant Depresssion glass made by the Lancaster Glass Co. of PA. Both are c. 1920. The first one shown is in the "Rose Pink" color in the pattern dubbed "Dart" or "Rib and Drape". The second one is in the Amber color in the "Landrum" or Cane Landrum" pattern. Lancaster produced very high quality Mold blown glassware many of which have the give away "Waffle" bottom. Very few of the depression era companies had this trait. So if you see a Waffle bottom, buy it! It's a good piece of depression glass!

With so much Reproduction depression glass around every Dealer should know how to tell the difference. I am not a dealer but can VERY EASILY Identify the real stuff from the fake. I was taught by a dealer friend of mine.

Take a piece of depression glass that you know is authentic, for instance a Tumbler. Now take another glass (not Depression). Rub the glass between your thumb and finger. Rub each one separately. Feel how the Depression glass feels soft and warm. Feel how the non-depression glass feels cold and hard.
Now do it with your eyes shut. Do it until you get the feel. Once you establish the feeling in your brain you can simply pick up a suspect piece of glass and tell without looking whether it's true or fake.

Ok Folks, I wish to be VERY clear here. I DO know who made these two pieces. I would like you to try to learn about them yourself in order to teach yourself about them ok! There are two similar handled depression glass platters here. They are both made by the same company, but the patterns are different. Can you tell me who made them? What are the names of these patterns? This is a guessing game in order to teach you about old glassware. I wanted a fun way in which to teach newbes to recognize and appreciate the old glass. That is my only intention. I will post the answers in a few days. Happy New Year to everyone!

This is a pink Depression Glass Cookie or Biscuit jar. This pattern has been widely reproduced. Can you tell a real piece from the many fakes out there? There are several ways to protect yourself from new depression glass. 1. The texture and color of the glass will not be the same. The old glass is very mellow in color, not bright or bold. 2. The feel of new glass has a somewhat greasy feeling to it, where the old is soft and smooth to the touch. 3. On this cookie jar in particular you will always see a large round mold mark 1 3/4" dia. on the base. If that mark isn't there, don't buy it. 3. Know the pattern you collect and read up on what has and what has not been reproduced. This is the best protection for you.
The pattern on this one is "Mayfair" also called "Open Rose" made by Hocking Glass co. from 1931-1937. The book price for it is $55.00 but you can usually pick one up for $20-$30. The original colors this pattern was made in include: Ice blue, Pink, Green, Yellow (amber) and Crystal. Remeber the original blue is a light Ice color - not the very dark cobalt blue - that is a repro. Also, My lid is not the correct one. This lid is in another depression glass pattern, used for a replacement to the original. It is old, but not the mayfair.

Here's a good link to some MOP vases. I'd never heard of MOP vases, so I learn something new everyday. http://www.fairy-lamp.com/Horn/MOPStudy.html

Oops, I guess you do know there's a difference. Try Fostoria. Your blog arrived while I was typing mine and I didn't read it until after I submitted mine...oh well.
