Measuring In Pink

Happy Pink Saturday, Folks! We're finally having summer here in Massachusetts, even had some humidity this past week, but yesterday and today are just warm and sunny. Perfecto!
Although I am not known for my cooking or baking, I wanted to show off my pink Depression-era measuring cup. There are 3 pourings spouts and it gives not only cups but ounces, which is great for someone who can never remember the conversions, such as me! "Kellogg's" is embossed into the bottom, and a few air bubbles are in the glass, which makes it an interesting conversation piece. It was probably given away for saving a certain number of box tops in the 1930s or 1940s. If you click the picture below you can see the logo much better.I paid $12.00 for it about 15 years ago, and have seen it recently priced as high as @25.00. The cup was also available in green, but is much rarer, and therefor a little more expensive.

That is very cool. I find that more and more I am drawn to vintage glass and dishes.

Fabulous. I definitely need one for my kitchen, even though my 1972pyrex works just fine.

Very pretty! It would certainly make cooking more interesting, but at this point I don't think I would use it. I'd be afraid I'd break it! Happy Pink Saturday Elizabeth!

What a wonderful piece to have in the kitchen, although I'm afraid I wouldn't want to use it for fear of ruining it! LOL! Might look pretty with some flowers in it sitting on my window ledge! LOL!!

Thanks for sharing and have a terrific Pink Saturday!

I have a gas lamp in the same color. Isn't the glass even called depression glass or something?

Hello Elizabeth, you just have to love depression glass, in any color, any shape. Your pitcher is beautiful and I would love to own a piece like that air bubbles and all, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Terri Morse said...

Elizabeth, I think that is the most unusual pink depression glass piece I've ever seen. The three spouts are very curious. What a terrific piece! Happy Pink Saturday!
