One of the more rare colors of Depression Glass you might be able to find is the Amethyst coloring. Collectors of glassware such as items from this period often opt to collect pieces that are part of a set, such as a whole dinner service or of a single pattern or color. Amethyst is one of the more rare colors that was used by the manufacturers of this low grade glassware and therefore is now quite collectable.
This purple tinged glass is seldom found and was not made by very many of the glass making companies during the period of the great depression and beyond. Items such as fruit bowls and serving dishes can be found in this coloring.
A popular color and pattern mix is that of the Amethyst Royal Lace by the Hazel Atlas glass company. Although the Royal Lace pattern is very commonly found it is quite rare in the Amethyst coloring. There are companies that are producing reproduction pieces of Amethyst depression glassware, so be careful if buying from an online resource or from somewhere where you are unable to physically "see" the item before purchasing. Also bear in mind that photographs of some of the pink depression glass items may also look similar to the purple amethyst glass.
