Pink Milk Glass

I love milk glass but when I saw pink milk glass I adored it.   It is actually called Jeanette Glass.  It is very pale pink with gorgeous details.   I picked roses to display in the footed dish.h, goblet, cookie jar, candlesticks, bowls, compotes, vases, puff arette
These two pieces were my aunt's.  They had been stored for years. I didn't know what was in the boxes when my aunt gave them to me.  Once I saw the contents I was so thrilled that it was Jeanette Glass.

The compote dish has a wnderful bead design around the edge.  I added a few rose petals and water.
This Shell Pink design was introduced in 1958 and discontinued in 1959.  These pieces were created around the time I was born in 1959!  They are old :)

This is the scallop design around the  top edge of the footed dish.  I took the flowers out for a second to show the delicate border. 

I have seen very few Jeanette Glass pieces in antique shops/booths I have visited.  About a year ago I spotted a footed cake stand but it was too pricey for my budget.

I will just cherish these two pieces I have and wonder what my aunt used them for ... did she put flowers in the footed dish or soaps in the compote...

Thanks for visiting!

How pretty, I have never seen pink milk glass. I have quite a bit of the white Fenton and Westmoreland. Cindy over at Retro Revival posted last week about using her milk glass for everyday purposes, such a good idea.

Love pink. I love all that "vintage stuff" and if the price is realistic, I bring it home and I do use around the house. Thanks for sharing yours which you displayed beautifully with the roses.

Lovely! I think my grandma had something like that too.
Has a vintage-feel to it. And the roses give it a warm homely touch.
Love it.
