Do your roses race to get one last flush of blossoms in before frosts? Mine do. My roses lose the battle some years but they never look so alive as they do when that last set of blossoms bursts out. I love roses and this glass pattern captures that look perfectly. It is Sharon pink depression glass, also called Cabbage Rose.
Sharon rose sprays always remind me of fall, even with the pretty summer pink color. Every year our roses race to bloom one last time before the first frost and those big generous – alive – flowers look like Sharon.
Sharon is another pattern that I like more each time I see it. The design is asymmetric, about the only pattern I know that is. The sides of cups and the rims on plates have panels with big flower bouquets and the centers are plain except for sprays of wide open roses.
You’re seeing the paltry few Sharon pieces we have left in inventory. The bigger plate is the Sharon salad or lunch plate, which is actually scarce, and the smaller one is the 6 inch sherbet plate. They look bigger right up close but that bowl is only 5 inches wide. My mom called her bowls that size sauce dishes but glass people call them fruit bowls or berry bowls.
I buy Sharon for our store inventory every time I can since it’s one of my best sellers. I thought you’d like to see how it looks in a tablescape while we still have a few pieces!
