I’m sharing some beautiful pink depression glassware with you today. A lovely fruit bowl set in a pretty pink hue. A gift from my Mother, it is a treasured keepsake. This is part of a set that was given to my Mother when she married my Father in 1960. Isn’t it lovely
The pattern is elegant and the color is so feminine. I really like the design of the edges as they alternate from slightly frosted to clear they resemble flowers blooming in the garden. I don’t know a lot about vintage dishware. But, I know some of you do! I can’t wait to read your comments.
I do know that depression glass was manufactured in a variety of colors during the great depression. Quaker Oates and other companies would include a piece of glassware in some of their product packages. It was very inexpensive in the US and Canada. It is still being reproduced today. Original pieces are a collectors dream though. I understand that it is highly sought after and can be expensive. I am not certain how it made its way to England, but I am very happy that it did.
When I was a little girl my sweet Mother used to fill large bowls with cold fruit punch. Her punch had bits of fruit floating in it. I believe she made it with fruit juice and ginger ale. I just know the carbonation tingled on my tongue when I drank it and it smelled so sweet. I would scoop plenty of fruit into my glass then pour the punch over the top.
It’s over 100 degrees here right now..Perfect for making a tangy and refreshing beverage.
I created this very simple recipe sparked by a pleasant memory from my childhood ( I hope you are reading this Mummy).
About a cup of raspberries, juice of 1/2 a lemon, a cup of crushed ice and 4 cups of lemon lime soda. It’s very refreshing and perfect for the this incredible heat. Did I mention it was over 100 degrees. Serves 2 hot and thirsty souls. notice the ice has already melted
Do you have any depression glass? Do you know what this pattern is called?
