Silver overlay Tea Room glass

My husband likes to give me eBay gift cards as gifts, and goodness knows I like for him to! It's always more fun spending OPM (other people's money), yet I wanted to find just the right thing. I held on to this year's Valentine's eBay gift card for nearly three months and am mighty glad I waited, for I found some wonderful Depression glass in the Tea Room pattern which featured silver overlay designs! I've collected a few pieces of silver overlay over the years, but I've never seen any on Tea Room glass before. Fun!

The silver was almost black when the pieces arrived, but I knew from experience they could be polished.

The silver is now sooooo polished, it almost looks white!

As a collector of this glass, I must say I'm thrilled with this year's Valentine's gift from my husband, and it was fun to find some unusual Tea Room pieces I never even knew existed before!
