My mother sent me this photo of a painting she had just finished last week. What you are seeing is pink dog wood depression glass, luncheon set that belong to Great Grandmother Freda.
As seen in an old advertisement it originally sold in the 1930's for under three dollars. Freda earned it a piece at a time from the general store.
Freda's Luncheon Set, Betty Hyre, 8 x 10 inches (20.32 x 25.4 cm), Oils on masonite
This has been the issue of friendly banter for weeks. While I have been busy at the grind mother has been painting glass.
