What is Depression Glass Cherry Blossom?

Depression Glass refers to a type of glassware that was mass-produced in the United States during the Great Depression era, primarily from the 1920s to the 1940s. One popular pattern of Depression Glass is the Cherry Blossom pattern. Here is some information about Depression Glass Cherry Blossom:

  • Design: The Cherry Blossom pattern features a delicate design of cherry blossoms and branches. The pattern is usually pressed onto the glass, creating a raised texture. The cherry blossoms are typically depicted in full bloom, adding a touch of elegance to the glassware.
  • Colors: Depression Glass Cherry Blossom was produced in various colors, including pink, green, yellow, and clear. Pink is the most commonly found color in this pattern, and collectors highly seek it out. Green is the second most common color, followed by yellow and clear.
  • Pieces: The Cherry Blossom pattern was produced in a wide range of glassware pieces, including plates, cups, saucers, bowls, serving dishes, pitchers, and more. Some of the popular pieces in this pattern include the dinner plate, salad plate, cup and saucer set, creamer, and sugar bowl.
  • Collectibility: Depression Glass Cherry Blossom is highly collectible among glassware enthusiasts and vintage collectors. Its delicate design and variety of colors make it a sought-after pattern. The pink color is particularly desirable and tends to command higher prices in the collector’s market.
  • Reproductions: It’s important to note that reproductions of Depression Glass are in circulation. These reproductions are often made with modern glass and may lack the same quality and craftsmanship as the original pieces. If you are interested in collecting authentic Depression Glass Cherry Blossom, it is recommended that you purchase from reputable dealers or experts in the field.
  • Care: When handling Depression Glass or any other vintage glassware, proper care is important to avoid damage. Avoid exposing the glassware to extreme temperature changes, as this can cause cracking or breakage. Handwashing with mild soap and water is recommended, and avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive scrubbers that may scratch the glass.

Depression Glass Cherry Blossom is a beautiful collectible pattern that adds vintage charm to any table setting or glassware collection. Whether you’re a collector or simply appreciate the beauty of vintage glassware, Depression Glass Cherry Blossom is a timeless choice.

The Depression Glass Cherry Blossom table setting I picked up came with a dinner plate, salad plate, bowl, mug, and saucer. I added a large white plate as a foundation and a little blue glass plate I found thrifting for .50 cents for a hint more of spring’s soft colors.

What pairs well with cherry blossom pink depression glass?

I started by pairing my mother’s vintage silver flatware. Although Depression Glass Cherry Blossom was considered a thrifty treasure in the 1930s, it pairs beautifully with finer vintage tableware, too!

What colors go well with cherry blossom pink depression glass?

This was the first time I had decorated a table with Depression Glass Cherry Blossom, and I have to admit, I struggled a bit. So, I headed back to the local vintage shop to see what else I could find to pair with this beautiful pink glassware.

That’s where I found a simple white linen tablecloth with a blue eyelet and a small round lace doily to center the table. So, my answer today is light blue!

Depression Glass Cherry Blossom: Place Setting

White table napkins and placemats pair beautifully with the Depression Glass Cherry Blossom place settings, and I even added a touch of gold to the mixture with a bowl filled with faux fruits for a hint of more color.

Spring Table Centerpiece

While I was at the local antique shop, I discovered this crock-like vase with four bunnies holding it up. It’s so cute for Easter and spring, right? I added some simple faux flowers to the vase. I will use this year-round, too!

The vintage and neutral color of this vintage vase and flowers allows the Depression Glass to be the main feature of this spring table setting.

Blue Glass Candle Sticks

I found these blue glass candlesticks while shopping in Maine. They are both a candle holder and a vase! They also paired beautifully with the rest of the table’s blue touches, all the vintage glassware, and pink candles for spring.

  1. I enjoyed your tablescape so much. I don’t own any pink and very little green Depression glass–I think of those 2 colors together for spring. I have a large collection, however, of Federal marigold Bouquet and Lattice, aka Normandie, dishes that I love for holidays/get togethers. The large grill plates slow down gravy overflow! Altough I have found 4-5 pieces together at times, I have put it all together, mainly a few pieces at a time; it can be done! I have several old Yorktown *similar to the old Fiesta) dishes that my mother got as movie premiums in the 30’s. Always wondered exactly what dishes were gtiven away–also what the towels in detergent looked like!
