For those that may not know, depression glass was manufactured in the Midwest and Central United States and is a clear or colored translucent glassware that was usually distributed for free (or at low cost) during the great depression (example: movie theaters would hand out the glassware for entering their venue).
There are over 100 patterns made and come in a variety of colors; most common are clear (crystal), pink, pale blue, green, and amber. Less common are yellow (canary), ultra marine, jadeite (opaque pale green), delphite (opaque pale blue), cobalt blue, red (ruby & royal ruby), black, amethyst, monax, and white (milk glass).
