Beverly gave us a new direction for this week’s Pink Saturday. In honor of our country’s Independence Day we’re spot lighting blue or red or pink this week. I chose one of my favorite depression glass patterns, Royal Lace in cobalt blue. This pretty plate is sized to go under a sherbet, perfect for this summer weekend.
You can see why this depression pattern is called “Royal Lace“. The pattern is flowere and blossoms in between sweeping molded arches. It looks like lace, don’t you think?
Hazel Atlas made Royal Lace in green, pink and clear besides this glorious blue. The story is that the factory had some blue glass left over after a run of Shirley Temple glasses and used it for Royal Lace. The rest is history. Royal Lace in blue is one of the most sought after depression glass patterns.
If you decide to collect Royal Lace you’ll want to take a good look at that inner rim. Can you see how it has an edge before merging with the center? That inner rim can get nicked so always check it carefully.
If you enjoy these blog parties then please plan to join me Thursday evenings for Fancy Fridays. Pick out something fancy and fun and come join us. I’ll bring the glass!
Thanks for visiting our Pink Saturday pink depression glass post this week, and as always a big thank you to Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for organizing this fun event. Please be sure to visit the other bloggers to see how pink we can be.
