*"Depression Glass" describes a style of clear or colored translucent glassware made in the United States. Most of this particular type of glass was produced during the height of the Great Depression in the 1930s. Sometimes, glassware was packed in cereal boxes, such as Quaker Oats, or in bags of flour or sugar, or even laundry detergent. Gasoline stations and grocery stores gave pieces of glassware if a particular dollar amount was spent, or as gifts as a thank you for stopping in. Some movie theaters had popular "Dish Night" events, giving away a different piece of glassware each week to moviegoers, with some families acquiring an entire dish set this way." Source
