Welcome to the first Tablescape Thursday with Elegant and Depression Glass to Share. Thank you for visiting and thank you to Susan of Between Naps on the Porch for hosting this fun event. It's nearly Valentines Day so let's go pink with a romantic table for two set with vintage glass and linens. Let's enjoy a beautiful combination of pink depression glass, crystal candle holders, rose pink taper candles and a tablecloth that my mom embroidered that I cherish. The dinner plates, serving bowl, cups and saucers are Petal Swirl by Jeannette Glass. Jeannette made this pattern from 1937 to 1938 and it's a handsome design with strong lines and flair. The rims have a pressed spiral and the centers have concentric ribbed circles. You can see this is a good use of shape and pattern to make an appealing design. You can read more about Petal Swirl here. I sold our small bowls just before taking the picture so used Homespun fruit bowls. I picked these because the pattern is another geometric with strong lines that complement the Swirl glass. This pattern is another of Jeannette's that, like Petal Swirl, is less well known and under appreciated compared to other Jeannette depression pink glassware. Homespun has thin vertical ribs on the sides and a pressed square honeycomb pattern in the center. It's a good pattern too, but I must admit I like Petal Swirl better. How about a glass of wine with this? Since this table setting is all about lines and geometry I picked a set we have from Libbey that has a simple etched line on the bowl. The beautiful swirled lines and graceful shapes of the plates and center bowl just cry for a beautiful candle holder set. We get to enjoy our candles in a pair of contemporary crystal low holders from Italy. These look like Cambridge Caprice or Paden City Largo elegant glassware and go so well with our Petal Swirl dinner set. My favorite part of this tablescape is the tablecloth. You can see it's meant for a bridge table. My Mom and Dad used to have friends over to play cards and Mom always liked to use the cloths she embroidered by hand. I received this when she died and cherish it because she made it. It has pink flowers and green leaves, very style and a rolled edge. We have the matching napkins but I didn't put them out today. I hope you enjoyed reading about our Valentine's Day romantic dinner for two with pink depression glass.
