Federal Glass Sharon Amber Depression 5 inch Berry Bowl
I went to the flea market today and found a few pieces of Sharon amber depression glass. One lady had several dinner plates. The price was right but the plates had quite a bit of wear so I left them. Another seller had a set of three pieces, a little berry bowl like this one, the larger serving bowl and a small plate. These were a little high but I bought them. Sharon is a nice pattern that many of my customers enjoy and the amber is making a resurgence in popularity.
Personally I'm partial to green and amber depression glass more than pink, but pink still seems to be most customers' favorite. Of course blue - in the few patterns you can find - remains the top color.
One thing about Sharon is how affordable it is. The amber 8 inch serving bowl is under $10 which is one of the lowest prices you will see for a colored depression glass bowl. It's been increasingly uncommon for me to find depression glass at the local flea market and I buy it when it's in good condition. I should get that new glass listed on my two sites, www.CatladykatesGlass.com and www.catladykate.com in the next few weeks. Then other people can enjoy it too! In the meantime, here is the Sharon depression glass listed now on eBay.
