    This collection was started by me in 1992 when I happened to have a room of Victorian nicknacks. I was able to complete it on a trip to Canton Texas to the giant flea-market there. My prize find was the covered butter which is the pride of my collection. Mixed pieces of other green depression glass can be seen in the pictures. Federal Glass produced this lovely pattern in the 1930s. An excerpt from a collector newspaper has this to say about it:

    Why We Like Federal Georgian Lovebirds Depression Glass

    Federal Glass made many important depression glass patterns. We’ll give tips to collect and enjoy a mold-etched bird and swag pattern, Georgian Lovebirds, this month.Federal made several well known mold-etched designs including Georgian Lovebirds, with a really neat design that alternates birds and baskets around the edge, connected by swags, and with a medallion in the center. Federal made Georgian from 1931 to 1936 so it is one of their earlier depression patterns...........Federal’s Georgian Lovebirds is an excellent choice if you want to collect depression glass. Pieces are available; it isn’t prone to damage; it hasn’t been reproduced; the design is appealing and pretty in green.

      I have two of the luncheon plates. I, by chance, found that they glow in black light. is this pattern truely vaseline, or is it just a fluke?

      Georgian Lovebirds pattern is uranium glass.Most accept the fact that vaseline glass is yellow or "canary" under whitelight.Green is under the larger umbrella of uranium glass.

      Thank you Hedgewalker. I am just learning about all of the glass that is out there. Just when I think I have learned about a pattern, I learn something else about it.

      Hello,
      I couldnt help but notice your collection of Georgian Lovebirds. Check out my Georgian 5.25" tumblers. They are pictured on my page.
