Vintage children’s dishes are an adorable way to introduce a young collector in your home to depression glass. Jeannette Glass Company, Hazel Atlas Glass Company, McKee Glass Company and Akro Agate manufactured children’s dishes in the 1930′s and early 1940′s to mirror the adult size versions already used daily in American homes.
Not only will a display of children’s dishes brighten your child’s room, nostalgia will take you back to a time when the simpler things in life brought so much joy and laughter to families. Back before the latest electronic or hottest battery operated toy, children played pretend and dress up tea time with authentic glassware. Little girls would mimic mommy, setting a table for her dolls and teddy bears with her very own set of dishes, sized just for her.
A collection of children’s dishes can become a family heirloom for generations to enjoy. Honoring a time in American history when children’s imaginations were at the forefront of playtime.
