When you were a kid did you ever make an atrocious rhyme (on par with Drink in Pink), then laugh like a hyena and go around saying “I’m a poet and you didn’t know it”? Maybe you were more literary than we were – or maybe you enjoyed bad puns instead.
Today’s Pink Saturday has us enjoying a glass of juice in a nice solid pink depression glass tumbler. I showed the larger water glass earlier in several table settings for you but this is the debut for the juice.
Does it seem odd to you that a juice tumbler would be so tiny? This one only holds 5 ounces when you fill it right to the brim. Of course you would have viewed 4 or 5 ounces of orange juice as a day’s serving back in the 1930s when orange juice was not so common.
Today we have aisles of juice to choose among. This is fairly new. You had to squeeze your own back then, and even into the 1960s or so orange juice came in concentrate in the freezer.
Fruit was expensive and almost unavailable in the winter time. You remember reading about kids getting oranges in their Christmas stocking. That’s because an orange was a real treat.
When you hold a depression era juice glass it reminds you how much has changed: Fresh fruit year around and aisles of juice all ready to drink. Depression glass holds memories.
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.
