I may have written about this before, but I collect LE Smith Mt. Pleasant in black -- which was their most popular color, and haunts many antique malls. I like black frilly stuff, so I just about died when I encountered my first piece. It's so BEAUTIFUL, and unlike any of the clunky black stoneware dishes out in modern production.


Some of you may have seen pieces of Hazel Atlas Crinoline, which is obviously a Flickr favorite, and has even inspired Re-ment replicas.

But in my idle browsing tonight, I chanced upon another cutesy pattern: Cherry & Cable, which somehow puts me in mind of the more precious sweet lolita dresses, so I had to share it with you all. (Particularly pieces like this pitcher or this jar, which is amazing.)

I'm personally coveting the black/amethyst carnival butter dish, which may be the single most awe-inspiring butter dish I've ever seen. And there's a miniature version!

I love the Mt. Pleasant dishes in black... so elegant and unexpected.

I'm a bit obsessed with, though the price is FAR out of my budget:

Martha Stewart featured them in a Halloween spread once, and I just fell in love. <3

And since I hit submit before I meant to...
Clearly, not a depression glassware set, but every time I see those black glasses dishes, I think of them.

As far as depression glass goes, I'm terribly obsessed with capri blue and amber.

I love the Mt Pleasant in black, it's just about the coolest thing in the world!

I still want to start collecting Depression glass, but they time just hasn't felt right yet. I love that you always seem to turn up patterns my regular searches don't. That cherry pattern is too adorable!
