Dating depression glass
This pattern was made during the height of the Depression Glass era.Windsor, also made by Jeannette Glass, was made for 11 years, from 1936 to 1946.This is very useful for learning to identify the patterns and for easy reference.In accordance with this tradition this paper starts with Adam and Windsor.I one time knocked a mug off a tall safe top onto a tile floor and the piece bounced and didn't break or chip.... When giving discussions about depression glass I used to show a piece and hit it against a desk top to show how strong it was (I DON'T RECOMMEND anyone doing that).Rosaline plates stack well against themselves, just like how nicely Corelle ware stacks and is a great alternative to using paper plates at parties because they are light enough, durable and people can stack food without the piece folding on them like paper plates do.
