Some Gorgeous Depression Glass Table Settings

Battle of Front Royal & Brother Against Brother Commeration

Today was filled with business in some neat historic places. We (an associate of mine Kim Cao, from FMG) started out in Winchester, Virginia and ended up with meetings in the town of Luray, Virginia. Instead of taking I-81 we drove the scenic Stonewall Jackson Memorial Highway and were able to squeeze in a little antique bottle and glass hunting in Front Royal and Luray, Virginia. I found a wicker demi-john that I will unravel and clean in Houston Saturday. I did come across this amazing antique shop full of depression era glass. Check these gorgeous table settings out. Don’t usually see full settings. Today, depression glass was my fix.
