I have a set of dishes that I'm told are depression glass. They are opaque pinkish orange color with an iridescent finish. Can you tell me what they are and their worth in general.
Thank you, Debra

@Lordyaswas,
The reason I'm showing Carnival glass is that you mentioned iridescence.

From what I remember, depression glass is reasonably clear, and either orange-ish in colour, or bright green. The green is also known as vaseline glass, I believe.

@Lordyaswas,
Much of the depression glass was/is iridescence. It's more identified by the pattern than color. I'm not at all sure of the values as it used to be sold at craft like shows and there was wide variation between one vendor and the next.
