My earliest memories are of staying at Granny's house as a very young child. Each visit would start the same. After a brief greeting, I would drag a chair from the kitchen table over to the counter. Climbing carefully up, I stretched to open the cabinet above the fridge. Looking inside – yes, the green glasses were still there. With their dark green bowls and shiny bubbled feet, they were the prettiest things I had seen. If I was especially good, I would sometimes wake up from my nap and Granny would let me eat pudding or Jello out of one of the sherbets.
Recently at 96, my Granny passed away. She left me a very small sum of money. It wasn't much at all. But it was enough to buy what I needed to complete my collection of Forest Green stems. Well, no collection is ever really complete. But I now have at least 12 of each size. I know that would make her very happy.
Later as a young adult, I inherited those glasses. But there was a problem. There were only 3 tea glasses, 6 sherbets and 8 water glasses. Through the years I would browse antique stores and flea markets looking for more. When I discovered online venues and local auctions, my collection really took off. But something else happened as well.
When searching all these places for more green glasses, I discovered an entire world of other fascinating items. I started picking up other Depression Glass that caught my eye. That lead to buying identification books. Soon I started researching all sorts of glass. I was hooked! Even today in adulthood, whenever I want to feel special, I make pudding and serve it in the green sherbets. It's amazing how a simple glass stem can invoke such intense happy memories.
