Green Depression Glass Tablescape

It has been quite a while since we last used any of our collection of green "Spiral" Depression glass (1928-1930) by Hocking Glass Company. If you collect Depression glass, you know that there is a lot of this pattern around. In fact, almost all glass makers during the Depression era made some form of a spiral pattern.
Pat's late Mother-in-law started her collection of green Depression glass - she gifted her all of the salad plates many years ago (and of course, having the "dish disease" Pat couldn't stop with just salad plates...…and then I "succumbed" to the disease.....big problem...)

The creamer and sugar bowl on the small tray is an example of a "Spiral" pattern by another manufacturer

Flatware is "Plantation" silverplate by Oneida - from our Mother

All of the green glassware is similar in shape but different patterns

When we set the table with a figurine, we usually use one of our Mother's Armani figurines - this one I actually bought years ago

Pat made small flower arrangements in drinking glasses that match those on the table

One last look at the table from the other end
Where it came from:
Lace Tablecloth - from (a mail order company that has inexpensive linen and wedding items)
Dinnerware - "Spiral" Depression Glass by the Hocking Glass Company from any where we can find it
Flatware - "Plantation" silverplate by Oneida from our Mother
Glassware - assorted green Depression Glass in various patterns
Napkin Rings - from Pier 1 this year
Napkins - from Tuesday Morning (almost always available)
Candle Holders - a "Spiral" pattern but unknown manufacturer
Creamer and Sugar Bowl with Tray - another "Spiral" pattern but manufacturer unknown
Figuring - by Armani from Fortuna Hallmark Store years ago

We will be joining the following Blog parties this week:
"Dishing It! & Digging It!" at Rustic & Refined this Sunday:
"Tablescape Thursday" at Between Naps on the Porch:  
"The Scoop Link  Party" at Stone Gable: (Here) 


  1. Oh, so pretty! I started collecting DG with pink, but soon acquired a few pieces in the green, too. Not enough to set a complete table like this, but I do enjoy using them. You and Pat give me lots of inspiration, thank you for sharing your beautiful tables.

  2. Absolutely lovely, Ladies! This table is so delicate and airy and would be perfect for a "Ladies Lunch" or "Tea". Thank you for saying where you found your exquisite lace tablecloth. I'm going to look into purchasing one today!

  3. Mom had some Depression glass but you have such a beautiful collection. So wonderful to see a gorgeous table!

  4. I am loving the soft green dishes. That set would be hard to pass up if I came across it.

  5. Hi Pat and Kettie: Love your setting. I just received a verry complete set of green depression glass (Sharron pattern and other pieces. I am looking for a ideas for my table settings. Your table looks so pretty. Lovely!
    Kind regads from Canada...Patricia
