Teal and Ultra Marine Colored Glass of the Depression Era Teal was not a common color in the depression. Only Jeannette Glass made much teal glassware and they produced only two complete depression glass patterns in turquoise, Swirl and Doric and Pansy.
Besides Swirl and Doric and Pansy Jeannette made a few other pieces in teal. You can find the three part Doric depression glass candy dish and possibly a few other pieces of Doric in ultramarine. Plus look out for Jenny Ware kitchen glass - it is neat stuff. The shakers and some incidental pieces go well with Swirl.
* Other Teal or Ultramarine Glass
There really are no other glass patterns in quite the same shade of rich, blendable ultramarine. Let's see what you can find.
Indiana Glass made Christmas Candy in the 1940s and 50s in Terrace Green, which is a greenish teal color. If we're strict about definitions Christmas Candy came a bit late to be called depression glass, but the color and style fit well. Christmas Candy is thick glass with a plain center. The rims look like the ribbon candy we see at Christmas.
In the late 1960s lighter colored aqua glass became popular.
Anchor Hocking made several lines in a light teal they called aquamarine. It's quite a pretty shade. You can find beverage sets with big round pitchers and tumblers in Soreno or Milano glassware. Both these patterns have interesting textures. Anchor Hocking made a full lunch set with lots of accessory pieces in aquamarine Soreno glass in the late 1960s.
Of course the premier pattern in aqua colored glass is Hazel Atlas Capri. Hazel Atlas used their Capri aqua color on several patterns - square shapes, haxagonal, dots, twist designs - that collectors call Capri. Capri is a medium aqua blue.
* What You Will NOT Find
If you find light teal Madrid glassware, this is reproduction Recollections from Indiana Glass. Federal Glass made Madrid in a medium blue that was a true blue, not a greenish blue. The Recollections aqua color is quite different.
* Tips When You Buy Teal Glass - How to Get the Right Piece
1. Jeannette ultramarine had some variations. Some was more green than teal. If this bothers you then you'll want to take care to get glass that is either greenish or teal.
2. Always check the photos and ask questions, especially online if seller calls the glass blue or green or aqua.
3. If teal is your color then consider Jeannette Swirl. It's pretty, available and priced to make it easy on the pocket.
