American Sweetheart Monax Tablescape

American Sweetheart Depression glass was produced from 1930 thru 1936 and comes in four or five  different colors. Pat chose to use our white set called "Monax" - it is slightly translucent and fragile looking but from the amount still available, it would seem that it is quite sturdy. (I always think that it has something to do with the fact that the company eventually became part of the Corning Glass Company which, as everyone knows, is synonymous for its tough, nearly unbreakable glassware.) 

For this week, Pat used a variation of a nautical theme - while accenting the table and dinnerware with stainless steel. 
Some people mistake "Monax" glass for milk glass - Milk glass is much thicker and whiter. "Monax" is translucent and more delicate looking.

Flatware is "Sculpt" by Lenox
We found the stainless steel starfish napkin rings at Tuesday Morning a few years ago
You can see the translucency of the dinnerware

The charger is Royal Blue "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa

I like to show the cup and saucer in a set of dinnerware - this one has slightly scalloped edges on the saucer and the traditional floral design on both the cup and saucer
Glassware is modern looking "Reflection" by Imperial Glass Company
Pat threw a fish net across the table and then used three lanterns as the centerpiece

From the other end of the table

  1. I love how the translucent plates let the color of the chargers show through. And of course, all the beachy touches are perfect - the napkin rings, the net, the starfish, and those lovely lanterns. Another beautiful table!
