A green depression glass replica nesting chicken was a Christmas gift from my mother and father-in-law sometime in the early 90's. I had been back to Iowa for a visit to the families as I did most every autumn. While there, your G'ma Ruth (my wonderful mother-in-law) and I went to lunch at a tearoom in Boone. We were near the restored birthplace home of Mamie Doud Eisenhower there in Boone and also did the tour there. Of course, there was a little gift shop area and we were looking at all the neat little things on display. I must have commented on this chicken as it appeared that next Christmas. It is at home in the kitchen cabinets, always ready to be used.
