You can often date your dishes from the color: jade green for the 1930s, turquoise for the 1950s, avocado green for the 1970s.
Whether you have inherited a cabinet-full of decorative dinnerware or are looking to add a little retro-style to your kitchen or dining room, find out what you need to know in KOVELS’ DEPRESSION GLASS AND DINNERWARE PRICE LIST, 8th EDITION.
