Last week you voted for your favorite of the three green depression glass tablescapes, Lorain Basket, Georgian Lovebirds and Cameo Dancing Girl. The results? dddddrrrruuuuummmmmm rrrrrooooollllll…… Lorain by a mile.
Lorain is a beautiful pattern and it looks great on a table. I like it a lot but if I had to pick, my heart belongs to Cameo – at least today.
I had fun with today’s tablescape. Today you’re seeing just one look but I got out several different colors and patterns and mixed them up. You’ll see the results over the next few months, and then maybe we can have another vote.
Today instead of green, let’s look at a rainbow depression glass table. Just for fun here is a link to a video of this same table.
The plates and cups are Cameo topaz yellow depression glass. Hocking made Cameo from 1930 to 1934 and based the pattern on an etched elegant pattern Springtime. It’s very pretty, one of my favorites, in yellow or in green.
The green center handled server is also from Hocking; it is the Mayfair Open Rose pattern. I love this in green.
Don’t you love the way the pretty pink bowl sparkles? This is Miss America, also from Hocking about 1935 to 1938, and it has small pressed diamond shapes underneath the rim. They catch the light and sparkle.
I picked the stemware because the pattern has a central motif that echoes the Cameo dancing lady. This is Cherokee Rose from Tiffin Glass, very nice crystal and a pretty etched design. I love how it goes with the depression glass and adds even more sparkle to our table.
The Cameo Dancing Girl is the star of this table and we’ve not shown it off so much. Here are a couple photos that show the beautiful springtime topaz yellow glass.
And one last picture for you.
Here’s the video for those who view this on the blog website.
