This past year and a half has been a difficult one. My wonderful husband,
Frank, died in February after
a long illness. Since then I've been dealing with everything that entails. Unfortunately my
business, First Class
Glass, has suffered from lack of attention and will continue to do so because of everything I
still have to do. So I have
decided to take a break.
Starting now, and until further notice, I will not be taking any orders for First Class
Glass. Come this spring I will do a complete update and be open for business.
Thank you for your continued patronage.
See you in the spring.
Sharon, also known as Cabbage Rose, also called Rose
of Sharon, was made by Federal Glass from 1935 to 1939. It was made in amber, green
and pink and some crystal. It was made in a complete line. The hardest pieces
to differentiate, for new collectors, are the thick or thin tumblers. You almost
need to see them side by side. However, this might help. Although they are the
same height the thick tumblers look chunkier. It is not too difficult to obtain a
complete set in the green; there are only a few pieces that were not made in this
color. The pitchers and the candy jar are the hardest pieces to find in green.
(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.)
