I have lots of odds and ends. Dogwood, Rose of Sharon, ect. I also like the newer stuff. 50s and 60s. Gene Florence reference books are also very helpful for ID.Earlier in the week, I picked up a Willow ware platter this week for $3.00 at the flea market!

I don't really collect it, but I am amasing a bunch. I've been buying & selling for number of years, so have a lot around. I have a 12 place setting of amber Madrid. I like the pink things the most.
A couple of weeks ago we had a community auction. I got a bunch of pink pieces for little money.
I have some pieces that are valued well over $100 each.
I also like the painted plates, old Bavarian & German are my favorites.
My wife collects cat things. She has over 400 items, figurines, paintings, prints, pillows, even Beany cats!
Also likes Indian things.

The amber Madrid is a nice pattern. I do not have any amber but I do have a single clear creamer from my Grandmother. I collect Sugar and Creamers too. The Barvarian plates and bowls are beautiful.

You know, I have been seeing my green Pyrex mixing bowl set in the antique shops. I love the pouring spout. I guess I should put them up and buy something to use for everyday. I have an odd ball blue Fireking m. bowl.and the large mixing bowl of a set that is Aqua. It has an Amish scene on it. Anyone need these? I will trade for FLOWERS :)

I just purchased a compote in the Paneled Forget Me Not pattern which I just love. I hope it will not be a difficult pattern to find. I've never tried ebay as it seems a bit daunting to me.

I also collect Lladro Christmas plates. That series ran for just a specified time, like maybe 10 or 12 years? I have maybe 6 of them so far.

I use mine on special occasions. Set the dining table with my best cutwork tablecloth , use gold ribbon napkin rings and tie gold bows at the base of my tumblers, gold candlesticks and gold silk flowers in the vases.

Makes for a stunning pastel Christmas table.

After the meal, I hand wash with bath towels in the bottoms of my sinks.

I use my depression glass on holidays only. I am too afraid of breaking it. It is fragile. I get kind of scared every Thanksgiving when I put hot veggies in the serving bowls. I know the glass is not tempered and anything too hot will crack it. I haven't been collecting as long as you Melody. Been about 3 or 4 years for me and I still am missing several pieces of the Princess pattern. I do have a butter dish, but it is in the Georgian Love Birds pattern. I started also to pick up a few pieces of Jadeite. That is a stronger glass because it is ovenwear. I'm not sure if it is microwaveable.

I have a pink butter dish with lid...just no green one. Got both the pink AND green sugars WITH lids...the green lid is very rare. Got pink candlesticks, no green ones. Got green vase, no pink one...and so it goes...I have 16 plates of each color...the regular and the grill...got sherbets and dessert plates...salts and peppers, veggie bowls and cake plates, pickle dishes, pitchers and tumblers.

I can feed an army on Depression Glass, but I'm like hemlady...I use it, but only on special occasions...but it's my 'good' china...I only have everyday stoneware and this...If I'm doing something really special, it's on my Depression Glass.

I had a lady stop in one time, I had a plate, berry dish, cup & saucer, as a place setting. (Sorry I don't remember the patten or color.) Anyhow she belonged to a bridge club and she bought that setting to make 4. Each was a different color & pattern. That is what she used to serve lunch to her bridge club. I thought it was kind of neat idea!

I've been doing this one piece at a time for over 30 years...most was done more than 20 years ago...haven't bought much since then...just a piece here and there. I rarely see Adam any more, it's just not out there like it was.

It's odd that you never see the grill plates...figured they would hold up better over their thinner siblings.I've not seen either kind in ages though.

Is the Depression Glass Daze still being published? I used to have a subscription many moons ago. That's where my hard to find green sugar lid came from.

The Daze will give a monthly overview of prices asked, just by what is being offered. I found my green sugar lid in Ohio. It really helps to complete a set...of course, that was before e-bay was even a glint in the eye of it's creator...it may not even be published anymore.

Gene Florence is the High Guru of anything glass...he's sort of like George Gruhn and Martin Guitars...they know more on their subject than we'll ever hope to...got several of Gene's books myself.

Melody - The Daze is long gone. The daughter didn't do as good a job with it as her mother did - but Ebay helped to kill it too, like it is killing the shows.
I have 17 different patterns of Depression in various stages of completion - but my pride and joy is the pink Adam/Sierra butter lid which makes my pink Sierra set complete. Another favorite is green Cameo. I still need a lot of the expensive pieces in that set. Most people use Mauzy's Depression Glass books today instead of Florence's. My wife collects several elegant patterns of Fostoria and Cambridge. So our house is full of glass. Harold

Hi there, I collect American Sweetheart-all white Monax. My grandmother left me a set of 6 and I have been adding to it for years. If anyone has any of the unusual pieces I am interested. My one daughter has started collecting Manhattan and the other one collects the crystal sandwich. BTW I have two sets of Salt and Pepper shakers so if anyone is interested in one set let me know.

Teresa, Monax is a bit hard to find. Most of the pieces that I have collected were found at the Antique show that Spencer's has in Louisville, KY on the New Years weekend. I love the transparency of the pieces and even though they look quite delicate they are just as durable as the pink and greens. Another thing I like about collecting it is that it has never been repoduced. So when I find a piece I don't worry that it is not authentic. My kitchen is country and they make a nice backdrop for some of my more colorful china.

I have a collection of the Open Lace ore Old Colony as it is sometimes called. the only thing I do not have in the collection is the glasses and the cups. I use the Queen Mary cups and glasses with my set. I only use mine at Thanksgiving and wash them by hand. I don't have to worry about these being reproduced because they are so deligate with the laced edges.
I have collected them for about ten years now but I have so many now that I just don't bother anymore and they are so expensive.
I kind of wished I had started collecting a green pattern because they go with so much other dishes. I just like all the depression glass though. I love all the different patterns.

The ruby dishes were made by Anchor-Hocking. They also came in Azur-ite(Light Blue), Forest Green, Ivory, Jade-ite, Milk White, & Pink. They were made between 1950 & 1954. The correct name is "Fire-King Charm".
They are in Gene Florence's book, "Glassware from the 40's, 50's, 60's.
As for the Heisey glass, that is considered "Elegant Glass". Usually very expensive.

Annabelle - go to ebay. There are presently 100 auctions featuring American Sweetheart Monax items. Several cereal bowls, but only the large Berry bowl. Lots of plates. But keep checking and they are bound to come up. Maybe you'll see some other pieces you need/want. You can cut down viewing so many items by searching just for American Sweetheart Monax bowl* (The * means you want to check for both bowl and bowls.) HTH. Harold

woodspirit ... Opalescent glass was first made in England in 1870. It became popular here in the USA around 1900. Opalescent glass is more valuable than Depression glass. I agree with you in that I prefer it over dglass but wow ... my pocketbook sure can't handle it! lol! Do you have a collection of O glass?

Patrician was a premium with some brand of flour. A 10" dinner plate was included in a 20 lb sack of flour to be used as a cake plate, so they are everywhere. Other pieces were given as bonuses to newspaper boys for getting new customers. It was made in pink, green, amber, & crystal. Amber was the give away & called Golden Glo.
It is depression glass.

Defoe, my Mom has a few pieces of Mayfair in pink. I would like to start collecting Iris, I belong to the Southern KY Iris Society, but I know that it is one pattern that has been reproduced and I am not that aware of the differences. My favorite is the Iris that is amber colored. I will be on the look out when I hit the antique stores around. I travel to TN to my sister's, so I go to Bowling Green area and North Nashville has some very good places.

Hi, Jazz I have only seen that in my books and at stores. I don't have any. What color did you buy? Lucky, a whole set!

Bluegrassmom, I didn't buy them, my mother had them. I am not sure I am going to keep them or not.(my 9yo loves them but she loves everything) However Dad isn't into the effort it would take to sell them so I was elected.

she had a lot of pressed glass also. Some different sized glass plates that look like grape or cabbage leaves (Probably grape now that i think about it) Some are green and others are clear..

Anyway..here's a pic of the patrician creamer just to make sure that the pattern is correct

My guess would be Florentine or maybe Madrid. Very pretty.

The glass is Florentine No 2, "Poppy No. 2". Hazel Atlas made it from 1932 - 1935. Value is $15 to $20.

Amber seems to be popular again. We sold recently at a DG show in Colorado, and amazingly sold more amber than other colors of Depression Glass, and also sold all the amber Fostoria glass we had . I am down to one box of amber from three not too long ago. (But no CG, I'm not buying any more glass at the moment.)

Bluegrassmom: What BR apple pattern do you have? They made several. I collect Quaker apple, which I started in 1953 by sending away for a Quaker Oats premium. I had a Quaker Oats box at one time that showed the offer. But haven't seen it for quite a while.

Hi, Bernie :)
No, I am good, I have the entire set.

Let me see about a link to my pattern. I love it. Even more because my set was a gift from my late Uncle that was 90. They were married on the same day Fed 22, 1944 with my parents and it was a wedding gift.

Geez, Bernie. Thanks for letting me know that Patrician is EVERYWHERE! My mom had green Patrician (by Federal Glass), but after she died, we only found a few pieces...She had promised it to me, but had a way of discharging household goods to the church rummage sales (which I now have to attend to FIND the darned stuff!). Anyway, I seldom, if ever, see it around here (Seattle), but I did find quite the little treasure a few weeks ago. It was a child's version of Patrician---very cute, but kind of pricey. I'm sort of at the end of my pack ratting days (I keep telling myself), so resisted, and spent a bit less at the shop next door on things I can actually use---maybe. Still interested in the Patrician, but at least it's not life or death...

The Patrician that is abundant is amber dinner plates that came with a 50# sack of flower in the 30's ? & 40's.

Is Blueridge considered depression glass ? No?

I would think dinnerware.
Depression is all the clear things, pink, green, blue, amber, etc.
Some people include Fostoria & that kind of thing, but that is considered Elegant even though it's from the same time period.

I am getting a bookcase put together for my reference guides. Be nice to get them out of totes so I can use them again.

Bernie, thanks for clearing up the issue of the "abundance" of Patrician. You sound far more knowledgeable than most websites or books I've consulted. Also, I note that many dealers lack info, and just mark their goods as green depression glass, for example. I realize the field is vast, of course, but I appreciate that you have so much info tucked away in your brain. I am curious as to just how fragile these items now are, given their age. I have no idea how well glass ages---I'd kind of be scared of using some of my old canning jars for actual canning at this point...Anyhow, if anyone has seen a goodly supply of Depression glass, I'd like to know where. Do you suppose certain parts of the country had more of it than others? Sounds like it was dependent on distribution of products such as flour. Gina
