Vintage goodies... this week it's milk glass!

>> Tuesday, February 23, 2010



Squeaking in just in the nick of time (it's still Tuesday!) for Retro Tuesday over at The Crazy Suburban Mom-

This week I have a cute little individual sugar bowl and creamer set. It's milk glass made by Westmoreland Glass. The pattern is called paneled grapes. What I love about this set is the sugar bowl has its lid. I did some searching when I came home with them from the consignment shop and discovered that of the dozen or so pieces listed on eBay not one of them has the lid with it! I guess people must misplace them or break them a lot or something.

In any case, I think it's really cute, but as much as I like it (and was dying to buy a sugar bowl and creamer set) it doesn't match my dishes like I wanted it too. The grapes are just too formal to go with my 50's atomic style stuff. So- this pair will be going to eBay when I get a free minute to list them. I'll open the bidding at $8.99. I hope they find a good home!

Oh the cream and sugar set is very pretty. Sugar bowl lids are so easy to break, lucky you to find a set with the lid intact.

Well, I really love this! So pretty. I have a few things that don't go with my collections too, some atomic dishes for one thing...but I hang on to them. I love the milk glass. Glad you linked in to VTT!
