The Twins Depression Glass Powder Jar
Antique home goods
Glass powder jars were originally designed as inexpensive pieces designed to catch the eye and entice shoppers to splurge a little more on these ‘collectibles’. Depression era glassware is magnificent when executed with seemingly easy ideas, as this is.
The opposing head turns with graceful tilts, the bent knees, the girls’ jolt-straight arms, all suggest sculptural influences. The curves of their figures are accompanied by the circular jar so subtly.
The jar measures about 4.5″ across. Circa ’20s.
