I got a lovely note from Carol P thanking me for posting about depression glass. Seeing their kind words made my day! Here is Carol P’s note and her lovely new acquisition, the shallow octagonal bowl in Lancaster Sunshine or Lana green depression glass.
“What prompted me to write was my purchase today, which I only was able to identify (I hope!) from one of your most recent tutorials on Lancaster Lana/Sunshine pattern. I am attaching a pic of it because it is so beautiful, and if not for you, I would have completely passed up this $2.99 11.5 ” of awesome satin aqua glass! Thank you for sharing all of you expertise with me and so many others so that we can learn to enjoy what you so clearly love!”
Carol’s picture is a little small to see the pretty design. Sunshine has lines that cross each other on the wide rim and a cane center and you can find it in green and pink, both clear and satinized. This piece was clear green; the photo doesn’t show the lovely color but you can see the lines clearly.
I enjoy Lancaster depression glass: The colors are lovely, soft shades of green, topaz yellow and pink; the shapes are pretty and go well together; the designs are pleasing and simple. If you enjoy depression glass, keep your eyes out for awesome pieces and maybe you can find a treasure like Carol P!
