Monday's Muster #10

This collection was really a set when new, but since I inherited it, I think it leans more toward a collection. These goblets belonged to my great-grandmother. I know very little about Depression glass which I'm guessing that's what these are. 

I have four of these glasses with twisted stems. The clear bowls are gorgeous when freshly washed; they kind of have a sparkly, prism effect.


There are only two of these with the pale pink bowls. so pretty.


My mother had these in storage for many years. I now have them on top of my kitchen cupboards. Wish I had a better display spot, but for now they're safe up there. They are very delicate and a couple have chips on the rims so I couldn't really use them even if I wanted to. Nice piece of the past.

Enjoy!

  2. Those are just beautiful! Aren't you happy you have them! When I was 16, I was given some gorgeous but extremely delicate goblets by my grandmother. Unfortunately, none has survived to this day. :-((( Of course, it would have helped if I had realized their family-connection value when I was younger.

  5. These are gorgeous. I have a similar glass but it doesn't have the green stem. It is the thinnest glass I've ever seen. Imagine washing those after dinner! They are lovely though! Hugs!
