Over the years of my collecting, this is the only green depression glass measuring cup I have seen in this particular style.
What I find so unique is the solid handle.
It also has a very generous spout.
As you can see, it holds 2-cups for measuring.
This photo gives you a better look at the solid handle.
Although I would not consider selling my vintage cup, I did a search today, on the Internet. I found one selling for $49.00.
That price really surprises me, since I paid $3.50 for the measuring cup, at an estate sale.
Don't you just love it when you know you found a bargain?
A really beautifull green measuring jug Meggie,ReplyDelete
I havent had a measuring jug in more than over 30 years.
My mother had a few.
As the family flew the nest.. i baked less and less.
you did indeed get a good bargain.
Hello Val...I still bake and cook a small amount each week...but, you are right, as the children grew up and left home, my baking has slowed down.Delete
Hmmm. Makes me wish I'd bought the one I saw last week at my local market. But I did get something else - in green Depression glass. Isn't it pretty!ReplyDelete
So, I guess, they are still around to buy. I'll check out your blog todayDelete
I love the green of that glass !ReplyDelete
Very nice find.
A treasure ;)

Green is one of my favorite colors to use in the kitchen.Delete
Bargains are great! I have a small collection of green glass, so I LOVE your measuring cup!ReplyDelete
I checked out your collection...you have some nice pieces in your collection.Delete
It seems like depression glass is getting harder to find all the time. It's all been snatched up by collectors. I used to love vaseline glass but that's getting scarce too.ReplyDelete
I love it. I remember my mother having green depression ware. Little did I know it would disappear and become a memory. I love the color and how fresh it looks . . . memories of Momma in the kitchen come to mind, My Mom was a fantastic cook :)ReplyDelete
