Depression Glass in Bankers Lamps

Depression glass has three basic characteristics:

  1. Light weight.
  2. Pale Color
  3. Delicate Patterns

Look for green, blue, pink, and amber colors, as they were popular during the depression years.  When looking at antique bankers lamps for collecting, inspect the shade very carefully.  Antique glass makes the lamp even more valuable.  Make sure that there are no cracks or breaks, as that will devalue the lamp.
