Depression Glass, Glassware Replacements
Depression Glass, glassware replacements made by various potters from Robbins Nest.
The Great Depression, was probably one of the most difficult challenges of the American people. Millions of citizens were out of work, thousands of banks closed, and the gross national product was almost cut in half. Despite these tremendous hardships the glass industry was able to manufacture more glass than in any other American History period. This glass, later termed "depression glass" in the 1960's, adorned the dinner tables and cabinets of a great number of middle and working class citizens all across the United States.
