~ Pink Depression glass....

Just a random cute piece of pink depression glass. I really like the color of this dish.
The thing with the older glass, is that it can be a orange looking pink... instead of a true pink-pink. I had been told.... so take it with a grain of salt... that when the color is off... it was a firing issue at the plant. 

I also know... that a lot of the reproductions done in the 60's and 70's ... produced some orange-pink looking glass. 
But the ultimate way to for me to figure out what I am handling. Is by touch. The old depression glass has a certain feel to the glass. That can't be duplicated. And it is something that you figure out the more you handle the older glass.

Be sure to check out all the thrifty goodness at....
