Does any one have an idea of what these are worth? I found them at my brother's house when he recently passed away. I think they are depression era.

    That's a nice grouping of vintage kitchen glass. The color is called JADITE or JADEITE. Made by McKee or Jeannette. Very collectible (although Martha Stewart has made some repros -- http://www.spglass.com/jaditerepros2.html).

    Your SUGAR canister is probably worth $250-$350. I'd search ebay to see how the current market is -- and be sure to search both spellings.

    Info on McKee: The McKee and Brothers Co began in 1853 in Pittsburgh, PA. In 1888 the company moved to a town that was ultimately named Jeannette (PA) for the wife of McKee's founder. In 1903 the company was renamed McKee Glass Co. and that stayed until 1951 when they became a division of the Thatcher Glass Co. McKee introduced color to its lines in the early 20's. (from: http://www.firstclassglass.com/mckeejadite.html )

    More: Other companies also produced "jadite" . McKee is known for their pale green "skokie Green" jadite. Pieces are often marked "mcK" in a circle and are recognizable by the bulge or hump on the bottom of each piece. McKee produced some pieces with decals, and canisters and shakers frequently have black letters to indicate what goes inside. The Jeannette Glass Co. bought McKee in 1961 and closed their doors in the early 80's. (from: http://doit101.com/collectibles/jadite.html )
