Learn More About Depression Glass

Depression Glass is clear or colored translucent glassware that was distributed at low cost, or sometimes even free, in the United States and Canada around the time of the Great Depression. Cereal companies such as Quaker Oats and other food manufacturers and distributors, put a piece of glassware in boxes of food, as an incentive to purchase. Movie theaters and businesses would often hand out a piece simply for coming in the door.

Most of this glassware was made in the central and mid-west United States, where access to raw materials and power made manufacturing inexpensive in the first half of the twentieth century. Over twenty manufacturers made more than 100 patterns, and entire dinner sets were made in some patterns. Depression glass was produced in clear (crystal), but favorite colors were pink, pale blue, green, and amber. Other colors include yellow (canary), ultra marine, jadeite (opaque pale green), delphite (opaque pale blue), cobalt blue, red (ruby & royal ruby), black, amethyst, monax (translucent white), and white (milk glass).

Depression glass has been highly collectible since the 1960s. Due to its popularity, it is becoming more scarce and extremely rare pieces can command surprising prices.
