Antique glassware is popular for its long history and rich colors, patterns and styles.


Crystal Glassware

The crystal looks similar to standard glassware, but it is a high-quality glass made of lead.
Due to its lead content, crystal glassware is stronger, heavier and smoother than standard glass. The fastest way to identify a crystal is to check its appearance and sound. When keeping direct light, the crystal should reflect light and project a soft prismatic rainbow. Hitting a real crystal will make a "bang" sound.


Depression Glass

The shades of the sunken glass vary, some are very light, while others are opaque and iridescent. Etched details, creamy trim and geometric shapes are the hallmarks of this favorite glass style. Due to the lower quality production technology, pitted glass usually has bubbles, raised rough spots and heavier mold spots on the surface.
