Pink Saturday/ Pink Depression Glass

I finally found my pink depression glass! I knew it was in a box around here somewhere, and I finally found it! All of the pieces are in the Mayfair Open Rose pattern, which is my favorite. Though blue is my favorite color and also my favorite to collect, I do love the pink glass too.

This first piece is a footed cake plate, I think. I found it at an estate auction in the house right behind me in my hometown. I think I paid $11 for it.


I don't even remember for sure where I got this next plate, but it was probably from eBay. I love this candy dish!


And this last is a long platter. I have a blue one also that is just like it. I think I got them at eBay too.


Still not sure where to put these. They will probably live in the kitchen cabinet with my blue glass until my brother brings the display cabinet down his house, which used to be our parents house. It's still full of my mom's glass, some of which will come to me, and some of which my brother will keep. It would be so nice to finally have a place for all my pretty glass.

To see more Pink Saturday post, go to Beverly's blog How Sweet the Sound.

Thanks to all who told me more about the coffeepot that I posted last week. Even without the lid, it has quite a bit of value, far more than the $8 I purchased it for. And I should be able to buy a replacement lid if I decide I need one! You bloggers are just the best!

Your pink pieces make me remember my mother. She had a set of four divided sections luncheon plates. My brother got them, and his angry ex-wife (after he caught HER cheating) took a hammer and... Yep! smashed them all-- throughout the house with wall-to-wall carpeting! Have a Happy Pink Day!

Oh, I love depression glass. I like the green - but the pink is pretty nice, too.

Your pieces are wonderful.

Great to hear about the coffee pot - I scrolled down to take a look at it! It looks fantastic, and I hope you can find a replacement lid.

Happy pink Saturday.

I used to like the green depression glass the best until my friend introduced me to her pink collection--some of which was her mom's. I now think Pink is the color I like the best now! Your items are great---and I love that teapot you shared last week--even without the lid, it's a wonderful find! Your story was great, too. Looks like YOU might have a book or two up YOU sleeve!
Happy Pink Sat. on Sun.! Dana
