Synopsis

The charm of milk glass has captured the hearts of thousands of collectors around the world. Though its name implies a milky whiteness, milk glass is now a term that encompasses opaque glass in a whole range of colors, from white to an almost solid black. This new book explores the world of milk glass in over 575 beautiful color photos. It contains items from the major manufacturers, ranging from hens on nests to miniature bank buildings and from plates to pigs, with examples of most of the colors and forms. Manufactured from the 19th to the late 20th century, they demonstrate the continuing popularity of milk glass. Designed for the new as well as the more experienced collector , the book is organized by manufacturers, with a brief history of each followed by a selection of their products. Current values are included for each piece. This book will delight and inform.
