Depression Glass from
The Glass Encyclopedia

A short explanation of depression Glass:
Depression Glass was produced in the USA during the Depression years of the 1920's and 1930's. Generally it was made by machine in a range of colours and a vast amount of it was tableware and kitchen-ware. Not all pressed glass made in the USA during the Depression years comes into this category. Higher quality pressed glass (usually with ground bottoms and fire polished) was made by companies such as Heisey, Imperial, Fostoria, and Cambridge and sold through jewellery stores and department stores. This glass is normally called "Elegant Glass" and is most commonly found in crystal colour.

The companies who made Depression Glass included Anchor-Hocking, Jeanette, Federal, and Hazel Atlas, and the most common colours were amber, blue, black, crystal, green, pink, red, yellow and white. Depression Glass was often given away as promotional gifts with other purchases. It was sometimes packed with break-fast cereals, put into flour sacks, or just given to customers in grocery stores, gasoline stations, or movie theatres. It is enormously popular with collectors today.
