Overview

During the Great Depression, glass companies turned to machine made methods to produce inexpensive, colorful glass for the table and kitchen. Green was a popular color for this glassware and its popularity is very evident today among collectors. This book, the first of its kind to extensively cover only Depression Era green glass, contains over 250 color photographs illustrating a wide variety of pieces. Examples of forty-six patterns and brief histories of the glass companies are included, along with a chapter of incidental pieces from such firms as Anchor Hocking, Bartlett-Collins, Federal, Hazel-Atlas, Imperial, L.E. Smith, U.S. Glass and others. Authors Monica Lynn Clements and Patricia Rosser Clements have created an indispensable guide for all who collect Depression Era glass and enjoy the beauty of green glassware.
