This pattern is called Saguenay and was made by Dominion Glass Co. of  Canada, based in Montreal QC, with factories in Nova Scotia, and Ontario (Wallaceburg) .  This was Canada’s answer to the coloured depression glass that was being made in the US during the 30’s.  The beautiful blue colour is fired on the outside over clear glass.  Hard to tell from my photo, but the pattern has fine ridges all around the pieces.  There are only two verifiable patterns of Canadian depression glass.  This one and one called Swirl, also made by Dominion Glass, which was only made in clear glass.  Saguenay came in yellow, pink, mint green, blue and clear.
