Have you got some Depression Glass items that you inherited? Or just want to know more about Depression Glass?
Antique Trader is putting on a webinar (online seminar) this Thursday -- all about collecting and identifying Depression Glass.
" Once a popular prize found in oatmeal boxes, and used by movie houses and gas stations as a free gift with purchase, the history of Depression glass is as diverse as the pieces themselves. Learn the history behind the companies, commonly reproduced patterns and why the hobby of Depression Glass collecting is getting bigger every year. "
