Depression glass

The name is somewhat of a misnomer.

Glass that is commonly referred to as Depression Glass is relatively heavy glass made in high production factories by pressing molten glass into molds with patterns of flowers and other designs. Up until this time, patterns had to be hand cut into glass. Depression Glass was made from the 20's thru most of the 60's with some patterns being reproduced as recently as the 90's.

Other collected glass is often lumped into the Depression Glass category by the public. Collectors draw distinct lines between Depression Glass, Elegant Glass, and Barware and Kitchenware Glass (like Fiesta).
