Green Depression Glass Tablescape

Since Summer's end is near, we wanted to do one more bright, cheery table before Fall sets in. Inspiration for this table started with a "Spiral" dinner plate by the Hocking Glass Company (1928-1930). Pat chose a few more pieces of Depression glass to coordinate with the place setting and then selected some green goblets by the Tiffin Glass Company to finish it.

The place setting

Flatware is simple and shiny - "Image" by Spode

These lovely goblets (and the flower "vase") are from the Tiffin Glass Company

Pat and I found these delicate napkin rings at a local antique store a few years ago.

Top layer of the place setting consists of a white vintage napkin surrounded by a lime green checked napkin held together with a shell and pearl napkin ring

The salad plate and dinner plate (that acts as a charger) are from Pier 1

The "Swirl" shape pattern was very popular with Depression glass - this one is "Spiral" by Hocking Glass

The "Madeline" dinner plate is used as a charger

Hocking Glass Company also made this sweet cup and saucer in the "Spiral" pattern

Pat cut fresh straw flowers from my garden and put them in a small juice goblet to match the other glassware

One last look

  4. How pretty! Your Depression glass is gorgeous, and the green and white theme of your tablescape is cool and refreshing for a hot summer day. ;-) Yes, we are still hot here in TX even though it is well into September.

  5. This table is wonderful, and I love the way you have highlighted the Depression glass. The gingham napkins are wonderful.

  6. Your green depression glass is just beautiful and the gingham mat and napkin keeps things fun! Pretty and bright, lovely place to dine anytime!
