Learn More About Roseite

Roseite - the lovely pink milk glass cousin to Jadeite, was manufactured in the United States by several glass companies from the 1940s to  the late 1950s.  Each company produced a slight variant either lighter or darker of the pretty pale pink color.  By far the largest and most well-known producer of Roseite - as well as Jadeite - was the Anchor Hocking Glass Co.   Hocking Glass was founded by Isaac J. Collins, in 1905, near Lancaster, Ohio, and produced, among other things, pressed-glass dinnerware.  After Hocking merged with Anchor Glass in 1937 and formed the Anchor Hocking Glass Corporation, they began to manufacture glass ovenware that could endure high temperatures. Their wildly successful line of ovenproof glass, called Fire-King, debuted in 1942 and was made for 30 years. Offered in a variety colors, Fire-King named their opaque pink color Roseite.

Why Is Pink Milk Glass More Expensive?

To create the dreamy shade of pink milk glass, a rare earth element called Erbium, was added to the molten glass. To perfectly capture that authentic, delicate shade of pink, Erbium is also used in the production of this butter dish. It is the addition of rare erbium that adds to the production costs and makes these beautiful pink milk glass pieces a bit more dear than their Jadeite counterparts.
