Welcome to this week’s Tablescape Thursday with blue depression glass on a vintage tablecloth.
Doesn’t this make you feel like going outside and sitting in the rocker on the porch?
Did you notice the green center handled server peeking out behind the tumbler? That’s Fostoria Vernon, a lovely, lovely pattern.
All the blue glass is from the same company, Hazel Atlas. They made more blue depression glass than any of the other main companies and these three are among their top cobalt blue patterns. Moderntone is the easiest to find and Royal Lace is the most scarce. I have a soft spot for Aurora though. I’m not sure why I like it, something about the simple pattern works so well in the blue.
This picture shows the tall Aurora creamer and tumbler.
Here’s another view that shows the Aurora tumbler with the Moderntone sherbet. How do you like how Aurora goes with the Moderntone? The tumbler looks like it’s part of the same pattern.
Here you can see all three patterns close up.
How do you like this vintage tablecloth? It’s soft cloth and I think the morning glory and hummingbird design was stenciled at home. Here’s a close up – please ignore the wrinkles. I love the morning glories and I love the stencils.
A few more pictures for you.
Ahhh. Writing this made me smile! All that lovely blue and morning glories and that little bit of green – heaven!
