Depression Glass Value Guide

Depression Glass is a term broadly applied to the inexpensive pattern glassware produced by about 20 different companies primarily from the 1920s through the 1940s. The patterning on Depression Glass is often quite rich and there is a wide variety of colors. These molded glass products were frequently of relatively poor quality compared to the art glass and higher end tableware of the day. Manufacturing flaws such as air bubbles and heavy mold marks are considered normal.
