Depression Glass Show Coming To Pontchartrain Center

The Crescent City Depression Glass Society will hold its 31st annual show and sale on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and again on March 18 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Pontchartrain Center, 4546 Williams Blvd., Kenner.

The one-time admission fee of $6 covers both days of the event. On Saturday, those interested in attending the event earlier -- from 8:30 to 10 a.m. -- may do so for $15.

The show features more than 11,000 square feet of Depression glass, pottery and elegant glass.

Twenty-seven local and out-of-state Depression era dealers will display a variety of Depression glass, American collectible glassware, kitchenware, pottery and vintage jewelry.

Depression glass is colored glassware for the table. It was machine-made and mass-produced from 1926 to 1939. It was sold for very inexpensive prices during the Depression.

"Today's definition (of Depression glass) includes elegant glassware also produced during the Depression era as well as glassware produced for use in the kitchen including creamers, water jugs and measuring cups," said Brenda Reilly of Metairie, publicity chairwoman for the society.

The show also will include American-made glass pieces from the 1940s and the 1950s and collectible glassware from the 1960s.
