70th Tablescape - Depression Glass

This week's tablescape is "clearly" a simple but elegant setting...
 Just clear Depression Glass (it is actually replica depression glass - from the 1960's)

 I used a flattened sppon end napkin ring..///
 Dishes are set on silver glass chargers.....
 The butter dish is actually cut crystal - a great find at Goodwill - $3.../
 The place settings include - diner plate, salad plate, bowl, cup & saucer and goblet.

 The silver set is Wm Rogers....
 Hurricane lamps - another great find at Goodwill - $6 for both of them,...
 Salt/Pepper set and covered candy dish!
 Sectioned relish/serving dish is set on a silver -raised cake server...
