About This Image

This is a milk glass jam/jelly dish and saucer that
was my mother's. I have some pansies that I am going
to plant outside in a few days and thought I would
put one little plant in the dish til that time.
This dish and saucer was made by Westmoreland Glass.
In the 1800's the company moved from Liverpool, Ohio
to Grapeville, Pennsylvania. In 1940's the company
began making condiment dishes in milk glass. Also,
90% of the glassware in the 1940's was made in milk
glass. Often sold at news stands and dime stores. Although there isn't much monitary value. It was great
fun finding out infomation in regard to many peices
that my mother has left me.

Thank you Talsi for viewing and commenting on this capture. If one has milk glass it's worth reading about it. I have had some for so many years and just hadn't paid much attention to the company or the history.
