Antique Trader online conference Nov. 5 and Antique Trader magazine are teaming up to produce an online conference on Depression Glass. Hosted by expert Ellen Schroy, the conference is scheduled for 8 p.m. EST Nov. 5.

Once a popular prize found in oatmeal boxes, and used by movie houses and gas stations as a free gift with purchase, the history of Depression glass is as diverse as the pieces themselves. The conference will cover the history behind the companies, commonly reproduced patterns and why the hobby of Depression Glass collecting is growing bigger and broader every year.

Schroy is the nationally known author of Warman’s Depression Glass, 5th edition. She has been the longtime editor of Warman’s Antiques & Collectibles, Warman’s Depression Glass and numerous other antiques and collectables books. In addition to serving as an appraiser at antiques events, Schroy frequently appears on radio shows across the USA. To learn more about the conference or to sign up visit
