~The Syrup pitchers.... depression glass green ones!

I have mention before.... even though I love the vintage pink kitchenware and glassware.... I have collected depression glass, in green, for many years. The curb appeal of this green glass is wonderful.
 
The thing about depression glass, was it was not expensive glass when produced. And there was oodles of it made and sold. So finding odd pieces of it is not difficult. But finding the metal lids for the containers can be tricky. Some of them were made of metal that would unfortunately rust.
Yet, there are lids that were made of aluminum. Which has retained their silver finish.  I recently came across this green pitcher below. And I snatched it up! I am thrilled that the lid is still in decent shape... 

Plus it still looks good to display the the smaller one I have...

I would not actually use these syrup pitchers... these fall into that category of... I would not have a sense of humor if they got broke. :) 
Yet, they do look pretty sitting out.... with good light filtering through them. 

Be sure to take a peek at all the wonderful finds from this week at....

WOW! Absolutely fabulous! I am going to keep my eye out from now on. The best green I've ever found was a sugar bowl. The best pink I've ever found was a cake plate. Great!
