Depression Glass is colorful or clear, machine-pressed glass made during the 30's and used as premiums in dime stores (chain emporiums where most things cost originally 5 or 10 cents). On slow nights, movie theaters also offered it to entice audiences through their doors. The colors offered are red, blue, pink, green, and amber and clear and the patterns range from the stylish Art Deco "Manhattan" to simpler, homey floral designs.
