Heart of America Glass Collectors
Meeting Highlights & Past Programs
Sandy shared her wonderful collection of green depression glass in the Princess pattern, made by the Hocking Glass Company between 1931 and 1935. Sandy started her collection in 1975 when she spotted the hat-shaped bowl at a gun show! The shape, pattern, and color combination won her over and she was off and running. She bought a Hazel Marie Weatherman book and started learning all about her pattern. The bulk of her set was acquired between 1975 and 1982, but she still adds an elusive piece every now and then. The variety of pieces in Sandy's set of green Princess is impressive; it was a lot of fun to see it all together on one sparkling table. Sandy's husband, Jerry, totally supports her collecting habit and may have started a few glass collections of his own!
