Elegant Glass Not to be Confused with Depression Glass

During the Depression Era, many glass companies including Federal, Hazel Atlas, Jeannette and Hocking made very inexpensive glass products.  Most of these products, to the delight of many people, were given away as premiums with the purchase of other products including soap, gasoline and cereal.  And many people still collect Depression Era glass, which comes in many different colors, styles and patterns.  Due to the abundance of Depression Era glass then and now, it is still relatively cheap to collect this type of glass.  Depression Era glass however should not be confused with Elegant Glass which was made in the same time period.

Although made in the same time period, that is where the similarity between Depression Glass and Elegant Glass ends.  Elegant Glass was made by many companies including Cambridge, Fostoria, Heisey and Tiffin.  Unlike its cousin however, Elegant glass was not given away, but rather sold at high end department and jewelry stores.  The main reason for this was the more expensive way that this glass was produced; Depression glass was mass produced by machine and patterns were raised on the glass; Elegant glass was made by hand with intricate designs and patterns etched into the glass.
