This summer was all about scavenging glass (heat kills my interest in clothes), mass produced American glass from the early to mid 20th Century specifically. A lot of this stuff clearly crosses the line into TACKY! but I find the candy colors and the expression of whimsy kind of sweet & irresistible. How fun to imagine that during the depression and beyond these mass produced beauties were packed into cereal boxes and flour sacks and given away as prizes at gas stations and movie theaters. I find myself having a weird attraction- repulsion relationship with Fenton Hobnail Compotes and Indiana Glass Kings Crown Thumbprint glassware - Is it beautiful or ugly? Both I think.
P.S. Most of my glass finds eventually make their way to my Etsy shop.
