1930's Pink Frosted Depression Glass Footed Bowl - Carol Pink by Lancaster - Satin Frosted
Luxury is not a necessity to me, but beautiful and good things are. Anais Nin
This is what your glass collection looked like in the 1930's. It was frosted and pink and slippery smooth to the touch. It had hand painted flowers and feet and a ruffled edge. Above all, it was feminine and pretty and functional. Introducing the depression -era class pattern - Carol Pink made by Lancaster Glass Company in Lancaster, Ohio.
Debuting in the 1930's, this footed serving piece was both an artistic statement piece as well as a functional holder for a variety of foodstuffs from fruit to dinner rolls, ice cream to punch and everything in between.
Today, of course, it can still serve all those purposes while also acting as a beautiful table centerpiece, a low vase for your garden flowers or a pretty holder for organizing and collection display.
Frosted and smooth like sea glass collected on the beach, Lancaster offered a number of different patterns in this style including Kay, Darlene and Carol. This is the Carol pattern which features dabs of paint that resemble cherry blossoms. Lancaster, which originally started in 1908, became part of the Anchor Hocking Glass Company in 1924 but continued using the Lancaster name until the late 1930's just after this bowl was made.
