Pink and green Depression glass, sometimes called watermelon glass because of the color combination.
Popular in the 1920s and ’30s, the bicolored glassware has become scarce. Partly because not much was made, compared to other types of depression glass, and because of its fragility.
Collectors consider it to be Elegant Glass, compared to the quality and cheaper wares that were available then. Generally the glasses have a pink bowl with a green or pink stem and green foot. Other items, such as pitchers and sugar bowls and creamers, have a pink or green body with handles of the opposite color.
They were made in just a few shapes: stemware, pitchers, sugar and creamer sets, and vases. Some were etched, usually with floral patterns. The color shading varied from a pale, watery green to almost fluorescent, and pale to deep pink.
