It has been a long time since I have posted in this blog. Not from lack of buying new (old) pieces – just for lack of getting around to it. I still have pieces from a May trip to Florida, and a recent trip to the Boston to Albany area to post.
My husband was wandering through an antique store on his own recently and picked up this piece somewhere in New York State. He liked the colour and figured I would as well.
I believe this is line #760 and is considered a basket, but happy to be corrected.
We went to the Orono Festival and Artisan Show last month. As always there was lots to see.
This pretty little plate came home with me. I didn’t know the name but it wasn’t hard to identify with my handy dandy pocket guide – Warman’s Depression Glass Field Guide.
According to Warman the Sierra line was manufactured from 1931-33 and was made in green and pink, with a few pieces in Ultramarine.
Difficult to capture the colour, but is is a very pretty green.
