Now that I’ve started intentorying (does such a word exist?) our stuff, I find myself immersed in all sorts of highways and byways of the net. I’m doing background research.
I have a couple of items that I think are genuine Depression Glass.
This green set – cup, goblet and tray belonged to a dear friend of mine who has passed on to greener pastures. I know – probably in bad taste, but said with the greatest of love and respect. She was a lover of fine things.
Try as I might, I have not found anything like it on the net. Admittedly I’m not the world’s best at searching the net. And I have no idea of the lingo I should use to fine tune my searches.
And this wavy little cobalt blue bowl I inherited from one of my work places. I was told at the time that it was a valuable antique. It has the cobalt blue hue of depression glass. Although small, the glass is quite thick and heavy. Again I have had no success in finding anything like it.
Anybody got any clues or ideas ?
