- Pattern: Woolworth Green
- Made in USA
- Vintage: 1940
- Details: It is a rare treat every time we find one of these Vaseline/Uranium Glass pieces and in GREAT condition. This is a very beautiful depression glass basket with a soft green glass color in a pretty grapes pattern called “Woolworth Green” but we’ve also seen it called “Stippled Grape” and “Oregon”. This is part of Westmoreland’s Vaseline glass collection which fluoresces under UV light (sorry, I didn’t have a black light to show you the effect), and was very popular at the time. We associate Vaseline glass with very old pieces as this one is, but in fact, a few companies like Mosser, Boyd, and Fenton continued making Vaseline glass well into the late 70’s. There’s a lot of history and beauty in this little basket, if you’re a collector, we hope this piece brings you great joy. Otherwise, it makes an excellent decor piece and conversation starter!

Depression glass is clear or colored translucent machine made glassware that was distributed free, or at low cost, in the United States and Canada around the time of the Great Depression starting in the 1920’s but continued past the depression into the 1950’s. Food manufacturers and distributors put a piece of glassware in boxes of food, as an incentive to purchase. Some movie theaters, gas stations and other businesses handed out pieces as a thank you for shopping at their establishment.
