Depression Glass
Florentine #1 Green

July 4, 2014

Hi Everyone,

As many of you know I shut down First Class Glass in order to get my life and the business in order. I had planned to reopen for business this spring. As you can see I didn't make it. I have realzied that I just don't have enough hours in the day to do everything I need to do. So I have decided to shut down First Class Glass permanently. That will be effective on August 31, 2014. In the meantime The website is open and I have placed sales on every item. The discounts range from 20% to 50% off the price as listed. There will be no additional discounts.

Please note, since I was unable to take a complete inventory there may be some items that are no longer available. I won't know that until I search for the items after you've placed an order. If I no longer have an item I will call or email immediately and let you know.

Thank you for your business and I wish you all long, healthy and happy lives.

Caren Reed

Florentine #1, also known as Poppy #1, was made by Haxel Atlas from 1932 to 1935.  There seems to be a lot of confusion between Florentine #1 and Florentine #2.  It's really quite easy to distinguish them.  In Florentine #2 all edges are smooth and rounded whether it's a plate or the foot of a cup or the edge of a bowl.  In Florentine #1 the plates are squared and have ruffled corners.  The bowls are also squared and have a rim with ruffled corners.  The feet on cups, sugars, creamers, salt and pepper shakers, sherbets, footed tumblers are all ruffled.  The pattern is the same on both, it's just the shape that's different.  Florentine #1 was made in green, crystal, yellow, pink and cobalt blue.  The books tend to place the prices of crystal at the same level as green but out in the real world the prices for green pieces are higher and the green is definitely more desired by collectors.  (We are sorry but we cannot email photos of each and every piece of glass for sale.  If you need to see a picture of an item to know what it looks like we highly recommend The Collector's Encyclopedia of Depression Glass by Gene Florence.)
