    So we got these as part of an estate sale lot and can’t find them in any of our books. Or online for that matter. We asked about them in a depression glass Facebook group and they seemed to think they might even be older than normal depression glass or something called elegant era depression glass. I dunno, not my specialty. Frankly I thought they looked 50s or 60s deco style. Any thoughts? Anyone know the pattern name or who made them?

    Can't help with what matters, but look like sherbet & parfait/sundae glasses to me, rather than something to drink out of.

    The decoration is cut, they are Elegant glass of the Depression era. I cannot ID them, not my cuppa.

    Even just the positive ID on the type of glass they are helps. Thanks!

    And they do! Years ago, I had some gorgeous pink, elegant depression glass: different-sized plates, several kinds of water & wine glasses, and various serving pieces. I held a small luncheon for my friend and her bridesmaids, with all the pink laid out on a pale yellow damask tablecloth, and pink and yellow flowers here and there.

    "Twas lovely!! :) And, oddly enough, there were five of us.

    That sounds wonderful! I wish I could have attended. ;)

    Very pretty glasses!

    I would think these could go back into the 1920s color popularity. The optic panel glass seems to be be more from that period. you might find the blank in Weatherman Bk2. The decoration could have been done by somebody other than the glass maker.

    I didn’t even know that was a thing. If someone did it after the fact they REALLY knew what they were doing, they’re all super precise.
    We’ve got multiple people trying to buy these and honestly we don’t even know what to ask. Appreciate the help. Assuming someone aside from the glass maker etched them does that damage the value significantly?

    As said, these are cut, not etched. The frosted parts were not polished.

    Gotcha I see what you mean. So it’s possible someone cut them after they were produced. Does that happen a lot? they are SUPER precise if that’s what happened the patterns are meticulously done. Was that common practice? Would it hurt or help the value do you think?

    It was a very common practice for companies to buy glassware from a company & them add their own decoration. They would do the cutting, etching, silver/gold overlay, painting, etc.

    Pink stemware is still very popular & has always sold well for me.

    Gotcha, thanks for that info! Out of curiosity what do you normally ask for is? We’re really new to all this and don’t know what the market dictates for stuff like this. If you had these sets what would you ask for them?

    Why don't you run it as a silent auction? People write in their maximum bid and the highest wins.

    It’s being suggested this might be HC Fry Glass?

    They do not look like Fry to me.
