Like all good collectors.... I have a depression glass pattern I have collected since the 1980's. The name of the pattern is "Doric" and was produced by the Jeannette glass company. Between the years of 1935-1938. And I have myself a place setting for 8. Today I am showing you the harder to find pieces of the pattern.... Like the tumblers...
I started collecting Doric, because it was just a amazing shade of green. When you see it in good natural light... it just glows. Lots of curb appeal. Plus I was not interested in collecting one of the depression pattens covered in flowers. I like the clean simple lines of this pattern. Yet, sadly it is prone to flea bites... (tiny nicks on the edges of the straight line pattern)
Yet, I still suck at taking pictures. I have tried, twice, to get better images of it. And failing both times.
This pattern was also produced in a wonderful pink shade. But I never bought any of it. The green was plentiful and I stuck to just buying the green.
I do use the covered sugar bowl and the covered butter dish... as candy jars on my end tables.
But make no mistake about it. I am not fond of anyone touching them. haha! And I would sh*t myself if they ever got broke. So I keep watermelon Jolly Rancher, wrapped candies, sitting in a one of those pink rose ash trays for guest to take candy from...
So my lovely green Doric covered dishes, don't get handle much.
