Tuesday Treasures--Depression Glass
Depression glass is considered a collectible today. Maybe it is even antique, if there is a distinction between the two. These little gems are my entire Depression Glass collection. The creamer was my great grandma's. The sugar bowl I bought to go with it so that it would be a set. I like the pink. My son (the former ceramic engineer) says that gold has to be used to make a pink or red color in glass. I don't use a sugar and creamer these days. I don't drink coffee. I don't sugar tea. But I treasure these two pieces because they are pretty and because the one piece belonged to a woman I never knew who speaks to me through time and space and her Depression Glass creamer. That particular great grandma was the Catholic, the Polish Catholic who passed her faith on to her daughter and grandson and on to me.
This is re-published from a while back when I started a feature called Tuesday Treasures. It seemed that nobody really wanted to share their treasures. Perhaps it is just me.
