Jennifer Miniatures set #2 - Mosser Depression Glass remake of "Cameo, Ballerina" in rare green glass. This is an 8 piece set. Mosser Glass Co. of Cambridge, Ohio bought the molds from Anchor Hocking that used to sell this item as a salesman samples which were minature versions of the larger pieces. It was easier for salesman going door to door to carry smalll items rather than large full size. many people mistake these pieces as children's toys.
They renamed them as "Jennifer" and re-issued the dishes to be sold as children's dishes. These were sold by Mosser Glass dealers over the years but now have been retired. The most common color is pink in this set. The green is hard to find.
The tea set would make a delightful gift for a special child or grandchild to hold their very own tea parties. These are collectible and somthing that your child can pass down for generations to come.
