Gateway Club Welcomes Collectors Of Depression Glass

According to "Kovels' Depression Glass and Dinnerware" by Ralph and Terry Kovel, the popular Princess pattern was introduced by the Hocking Glass company in 1931.

The first sets were made in green, two shades of yellow, apricot and topaz. Later, pieces in both pink and blue were manufactured. Some of the pieces have a frosted finish; others are decorated with hand-painted flowers. The green pattern is sometimes trimmed in gold. Even though the pattern was discontinued in 1935, reproductions have surfaced in recent years. In this guide, published by Random House Reference, typical values of Princess glass in green include a candy dish with cover, $60-$70; salt and pepper set, $80; cup, $10-$18, and dinner plate, $28-$45. I have seen pieces of this pattern in area shops for slightly less.

Collecting Depression glass is extremely popular, and one of the better groups is the Gateway Depressioneers Club. Both members and the public are invited to the next regularly scheduled meeting at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in room 201B of the Kirkwood Community Center. Everyone who attends is welcome to bring pieces to identify. Betty Buersmeyer (phone 636-257-0567) is president of the group.
