Garage Sale Finds: Vintage Glass

Monday, August 1, 2011

Behold, my recent garage sale scores.  I may have a slight addiction to vintage glassware.  I am slowly replacing all of our glasses with thrifted printed glasses.

The pink depression glass piece is a candy dish I found at a sale in our neighborhood...the lady had bought a box of glass at an auction, but only wanted the bottles.  My quick research online tells me it is a Jeannette cube glass most likely manufactured between 1920-1933.  I find it amazing that I purchased a possibly 90 year old candy dish at a garage sale.  Depression glass is fascinating to me.

The pitcher and cups are probably not that old...but I like them.  And I now have way less room in my cabinets.

  1. Oooooh, I am right there with you! I absolutely love vintage! Those are perfect. Once we get another place, we are not buying anything unless I absolutely love it, and it's pretty, and it's vintage. Yep, must fit all three requirements. :)

  2. You inherited your love of pink depression glass from me. I have several pieces that I love! I now have my eye out for a piece or two of the green. I really like your glasses and pitchers. And hold onto your hat....today I am getting rid of all the everyday glasses we have been using for the last 25 years! I know, I'm crazy...I think it's the heat!!!! Mom

  4. I'm with you on a love of vintage glass. My personal favorite is a pattern called Cape Cod. Don't look it up, though...you might get addicted. Like me.
