Pickle Dish - Depression Glass?

I am wondering if this pickle dish would be considered Depression Glass and how old it might be.

It's sure cute....but I wouldn't call it depression.

Would pressed glass be more like it?

Later: perhaps Hobnail would be it.

Yeah....it's pressed....because it's certainly not blown!! and those are the only choices for how glass is made.
It has "hob nails"....but it's not hob nail glass....
Likely it's 1940-ish novelty glass....but not the kind of glassware commonly called "depression."

There's a couple similiar to yours on Etsy. (yours is cuter IMHO). One post calls it Jeannette glass. I've included the link.

Here is a link that might be useful: Pickle dish on Etsy

Not the same or even similar....that blue dish is a bad repro, certainly not Jeanette. The original was from a pattern called Actress, made about 1870ish and featuring a different actress of the day on each piece. the pickle dish features Lotte Crabtree....I know I have one.

Thanks for all the help on this one. I am going to assume it's novelty glass.

It is indeed "novelty glass"....or a glass novelty....and I have seen one before....but can't for the life of me remember where....likely a show somewhere.
