The Milky Way... Vintage Milk Glass

Vintage Milk Glass

A few of the items here came from two great little Opp Shops in Mont Albert and Kew East. The large compote (back right) was purchased at Auction. Some bargains, some not.

I totally love Milk Glass and this is just the start of my collection... Op/Charity shops and markets are great places to find Milk Glass pieces priced anywhere from $2-70+ depending on what you have age/where it's from and the maker. Some Milk Glass items fetch far more. You will find just about anything from compotes to light shades and serving platters constructed from Milk Glass .... my fave items are the little Hobnail bud vases centre right - a single orange or yellow garden rose placed in each makes for a cute display!

The Metal sign was purchased on Portobello Road late 2010... it's just a reproduction but I love it all the same and will feature this and others later on.

FYI: Milk Glass was first created in the 15th century in Italy to  imitate Porcelain from the east. (source Millers Buyers Guide)
