Tea Room Depression Glass Glasses

Well, it's a good thing I devote a little portion of my Christmas bonus each year to personal "mad money." And perhaps I should call it "glad money," because it certainly made me glad when I came across two very reasonably priced Tea Room Depression glass glasses the other day!

These had definitely been on my wish list for a while, but after I found a clear one for just $2 at an antique mall, I was extra cheap when cyber shopping for pink ones. Often, they've sold for $30 to $40 each. These? Just $7.99 each. Score!

And I'm always a little nervous when buying this Tea Room pattern online. That Art Deco design had so very many little points that could get nicked and chipped, but these glasses were just perfect. I'm still dreaming of the day I will have a tea party with four place settings consisting entirely of pink Tea Room Depression glass teawares. Maybe 2013 will be the year!

Lucky you Angela, sometimes I think these desirables are just waiting for you to find them.
A tea all dressed in pink depression glass will be so pretty.

I just adore your tearoom depression glass. If I were still collecting I would definitely be looking for these. They are beautiful, love art deco. It is by far my favorite era.
