Thank you for letting me share our blue depression glass table with you. Thank you to Susan from Between Naps on the Porch and friends for this fun Tablescape Thursday. Today we're having lunch for two and enjoying the first daffodils of the year. Don't the flowers add a touch of spring? Daffodils are my favorite but they won't bloom outdoors here until April. It's sunny outside - blue skies and a warm breeze (warmish anyway) - so let's celebrate a good day for blue. We have blue glass plates, sherbets, cups and saucers and a deep blue crystalline glaze vase from artist Dave Eickholt. The cheerful yellow flowers look great in Dave's green art vase. Moderntone is depression glass. Hazel Atlas made this from 1934 to 1942 in cobalt blue and some amethyst purple and that's the color people collect the most. They knew they had a good thing going and re-issued this pattern in the early 1950s in a white glass they called Platonite that had overlays of bright colors. I like the transparent blue the best. Doesn't it look good on the white hand-crocheted doily tablecloth? I try to keep Moderntone in stock in our store Vintage Elegant Depression Glass by Catladykate and at the moment we have the pieces shown in the photo. Here is a close up of the sherbet so you can see it better. Can you see the art deco influence here with the round and square shapes mixed? I love flowers so when I saw the daffodils grocery shopping it was easy to pick a bunch. The yellow is pretty bright with the cobalt blue, I think next time we decide to show off blue I'll get pink flowers or pick soft apricot colored pansies. The smaller vase is a great combination of cooler navy colors in a crystalline glaze, also by noted artist Dave Eickholt. It's fun to mix these art pieces with my depression glass - quite a contrast that works. The dark blue vase helps tone down the bright flowers and you can see how well it melds with the green vase and the cobalt glass. Thanks for visiting. Buying Guide: Moderntone cobalt blue depression glass is available at Catladykate - it's like antiquing with your best friend. Crystalline glazed pottery is available at Dave Eickholt's shop.
