Pink Depression Glass Coffee CupPink Depression Glass has been a popular collectible for many years. The shades vary greatly, from a pale blush pink to a more vibrant color.
There are hundreds of patterns by numerous manufacturers. A good book on Depression Glass patterns is invaluable in helping you to identify pieces.
