Thank you for stopping by. You are looking at a set of 18 Watermelon Pink Green Optic Depression Glasses of three sizes (6 of each size).

T are 6 dessert which measure 3 3/4" tall and 3 1/2" at the top. One of these glasses has the tinest "flea bite" on the rim which you can only feel when you run your finger over the rim. We never saw it and my aunt is still looking for the "culprit" who made it. If you know who she or he is please let my aunt know.

T are 6 water glasses which measure 5" tall and 3 1/2" wide at the top.

T are 6 wine glasses which measure 6 1/2" tall and 3" wide at the top.

These matching glasses are a delicate pink cup and stem with a green base and with the optics, they look like diamonds sparkling when used at table with the lights on. These were only used at family formal occasions with great care. They were always hand washed and dried and stored very carefully.

I wanted to add this in response to a question. Our local antique dealer who handles a lot of depression glass advised us that these pieces were diamond optic. I will fully admit, I do not know-as I advised the person asking the question, I do not have antique dishes-if it won't go in the dishwasher, I am not interested. I hope this helps anyone looking.

Add to your family's tradition this holiday season with this wonderful old set of depression
