Learn More About Roseite

The pretty pink cousin of Jadeite, Roseite was another lovely milk glass shade that was developed shortly after World War II and brought its delicate color and charms to kitchens coast-to-coast. To create the dreamy shade of pink, Erbium, a rare earth element, was added to the molten glass. To perfectly capture that authentic, delicate shade of pink, erbium is also used in the production of these hobnail pitchers. 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.

 

Learn More About Milk Glass

Opaque Glass originated in 16th century Venice and came in a variety of colors, including white, pink, yellow, blue, and brown. The white variety beloved today rose to prominence during the Victorian era, when 
it was coveted as an economic dead-ringer for porcelain. (The Victorians also get credit for coining the term "milk glass.")

Its production and popularity waned during the Great Depression but saw a resurgence after World War II. During the 1950s and 1960s companies such as Anchor Hocking, Fenton, and Westmoreland increased production of milk glass pitchers, vases, plates and cake stands in all sorts of shapes and sizes to meet the demand for this timeless collectable.*

Learn More about Jadeite

Jadeite was manufactured in the United States by many glass companies from the 1930s to the early 1970s. Each company produced a slight variant either lighter or darker of Jadeite's classic seafoam-green jade color.

Jadeite was heavy, durable, inexpensive and, sometimes even free! It was often packaged as a giveaway in food and cleaning products. Many restaurants and diners served meals on Jadeite dishes, as they cost pennies to buy and were sturdy enough to hold up to commercial use.
