Depression glass was distributed in Canada and the US during the time of the Great Depression. It was made in the early period of the nineteen century precisely between 1920s and 1930s. As a result of economic decline during the depression, trade and industrial activity was reduced to the barest minimum. Many people were unemployed. In order to increase business and create incentive for people to purchase goods, some companies came up with the idea of using attractive and useful glass items to boost their sales and give a token of appreciation for patronizing them. Food companies put the glassware in their food boxes. As well as movie theaters and businesses handing out a piece of depression glass to patrons entering their offices. Resulting in the name, "Depression Glass".
More than 100 patterns were made by about 20 manufacturers. Manufacturers such as Jeannette Glass, MacBeth-Evans & Hocking Glass just to name a few.
