I normally don’t fall for pink glass, and neither am I a big buyer of non-Elegant Depression glass. But the design on this piece was pretty. I have tried to show the centre although it is hard to see. But it reminds me of a great, big snowflake and, despite my aversion for snow and winter, ( it is snowing and blustery as I type!), I liked the pattern!
I didn’t know what it was, but my handy dandy Warman’s Depression Glass field guide had the pattern on page 57 (3rd edition). According to Warman’s the manufacturing range listed was 1930-1936. Colours produced included blue, Monax, pink and red. Limited production in Cremax and colour-trimmed Monax.
This is the 12 inch salver.
Here’s an interesting article about American Sweetheart by Kathy Eickholt on the National Depression Glass Association website.
I don’t think that I have knowingly owned anything else by Macbeth-Evans of Charleroi, Pennsylvania. And…..I didn’t know where Charleroi is.
According to Wikipedia:
“Charleroi ( shaw-lə-roy) is a borough in Washington County, Pennsylvania, along the Monongahela River, 21 miles south of Pittsburgh.[ Charleroi was settled in 1890 and incorporated in 1891. The 2010 census recorded a population of 4,120.”
For a brief history of the company check out this post on The Lampworks’ website. As an aside, I found The Lampworks’ site to be interesting on its own. I hope that I am able to visit some day.
