About the Author:

Bettye S. James resides in Lakeland, Florida, with her husband, Brad. They were charter members and former officers of the Depression ERA Collectibles Club, Manassas, VA. She is a former Vice President and President of the Central Florida Glassaholics Club in Lakeland, and involved with the club's annual glass show. She initially collected glass of the Depression era. While progressing to other types of glass, her concentration focused on cake stands, primarily Early America Pattern Glass.

Jane M. O'Brien and her husband, Tom, reside in Manassas, Virginia. She is a health educator by trade and co-owner of JK-Action, a provider of CPR and first aid training for local businesses. She has collected glass and antiques for several years. In the beginning, her glass collection consisted of bowls, platters, and other serving pieces in various patterns. Eventually, she focused on a select few patterns of Depression glass.
