This pretty little amber dish is one that my mother always used to serve pickles in. Home canned, of course! I always loved her bread and butter pickles.

I put the pencil in the picture to give a better idea what the size of the dish is. I had a hard time trying to get a picture to show the raised design all over the dish.

As far as I can see, this dish is still in perfect shape. I think it must be at least 75 years old, and maybe older, since I remember it always being there.  I wish I had a nice china cabinet to show off what old dishes I have. It isn't very many, but I also have quite a bit of crystal dishes, vases, and candle holders that I have received as gifts over the years. I don't make an effort to collect anything so my collections aren't big, but most have a memory attached to them.

  1. Your pickle dish is beautiful. That's what they call 'depression glass', isn't it? My mom used to collect depression glass before people realized it had value. She used to buy it for .25 cents at yard sales and has quite a collection. I am not sure where she stored it, but my dad thinks it may be in the attic. Seeing yours, reminds me that I may want to search for it soon. I love the delicate lacy floral patterns.


I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment.
