Pink Saturday ~ Depression Glass

Welcome to Pink Saturday

 

All this Pink Depression Glass is from Dear’s Great, Great, Aunt Emma. It sat in a trunk for years and Dear’s mother never chose to empty the trunk and use anything in it. After Dear’s mother passed away I decided to pull it all out and use it. It’s goes well with my Royal Albert Moss Rose Pattern.

Thank you so much for visiting my Pink today. For more Pink Saturday Posts visit Beverly at her blog How Sweet the Sound.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I posted on my blog from 2007-2015 hostage and replaced them with big black and grey boxes with threats. So discouraging…as I’m slowly trying to clean up thousands of posts!

  1. Very Pretty. I love depression glass. I know that it was during the Depression but honey there is nothing depressing about owning that pretty collection.
    Hope you will stop by

  2. Wow, what a terrific collection. I have ONE piece that I posted about today.

    Happy anniversary to your folks; maybe their anniversary is the same as mine–July 7th.

  3. Beautiful glass dishes — I am glad you are using them! šŸ™‚ I am definitely of the mindset to use the pretty things when they are available. My mother was given a set of English Bone China years ago by her colleagues when we moved to another town. It was such a nice and expensive gift because Bone China from England just didn’t come by everyday in the small town I grew up in Southeast Asia. Mom never had the hear to use the set, and the set was always in the storage unit of our house. Well, someone broke into that storage unit, and took the dishes!!! All Mom has left now are two little bread plates. I feel so sad that she never got to enjoy those precious dishes.

  4. To think my mom gave away her green depression glass…thought nothing of it. You have a lovely collection and what a sweet tea cup! Love the way you were able to capture it..just perfect!

  5. Oh, my goodness, that Royal Albert Moss Rose dinnerware is some of the prettiest I’ve ever, ever seen.
    The pink depression glass looks just fabulous with it.
    Now, I am off to Ebay to see if I can find some of that luscious Moss Rose dinnerware….soooo pretty.

  6. What an interesting story about the depression glass. Lucky you to have it now. Such beautiful pieces. and they do compliment your Royal Albert dishes. Beautiful.

    Hugs…Jeanne

  8. My friend has several pieces of Pink Depression glass–she used the goblets and berry bowls at a recent luncheon she hosted. It was such a treat for us guests! I’m glad you’re using yours, too! Dana

  9. Ellen, I love your pink depression glass collection. But I must say that I truly love your teapot and teacup. I love anything to do with tea. So sweet and pretty. This is my first Pink Saturday and I look forward to seeing what people share. hugs, Ellen p.s. Love your name šŸ˜‰ šŸ˜‰ šŸ˜‰

  10. Absolutely beautiful! And how wonderful that is a family heirloom! Can’t believe it sat in a trunk for so long unused! What a shame! Goes great with you beautiful china! ~Rhonda šŸ™‚

  11. I have a HEAVY ( 5 LBS) BLOWN pink glass bowl with a beautiful striped fish in the bottom of the bowl. It has flecks of gold in the fins, etc. Air bubbles with the fish. It is darker ruby/pink on the rim and less toward the bottom. It is old but that is all I know about it. It is absolutely beautiful but I can find no info on it. It is 3″ deep and 9″ across. The fish is done in hues of pink and purple with gold eye and trim. I have seen some Murano glass that comes close, but not it. Thank you for any help. Wanda (Your collection is lovely)
