Clear Depression Glass

by admin on August 27, 2009

One of the main reasons why depression glass is so popular is the colors that it comes in. Due to the fact that money was so tight and the pressed glassware was so easy to produce, it made sense to make the pieces as colorful and as attractive as possible to get people to want them. Don't forget that this type of glass was made during the American great depression period (1929-1939) and people's incomes has dropped quite a bit, so the nicer the coloring of this cheap glassware the better.

As well as the cobalt blues, the royal ruby reds and the emeral green items, a range of clear depression glass was also created for those who liked original or plain pieces. The glassware was still patterned and the manufactuers ensured that those who had this color were treated to a good quality piece. The patterns look almost etched on to the glass when there is no coloring in the material and makes it look more valuable. Some of the elegant glass pieces that were produced as a high-end version of depression glass were done in a clear coloring. This was perhaps due to the rise of the purchasing of crystalware items which would eventually overtake their cheaper rivals.

All of the major depression glass makers were involved in producing the clear versions. Jeannette Glass, McKee Glass, Hocking and Hazel-Atlas to name but a few. I guess that the clear depression glass pieces were cheaper to produce and were easier to make, therefore all of the companies were keen to make this sort of item too.
