Obsession

I just ordered, bid, and made offers on several different pieces of this stuff... Milk Glass. Isn't it gorgeous?

Milk Glass was first made in Venice in the 16th century in several different colors, the milky white color comes from the addition of tin dioxide to the glass itself in the blowing process. Pieces were made for the wealthy throughout the Gilded Age and they're known for their delicacy and beauty in their color and design. However, the term 'milk glass' is relatively recent.

The plates I purchased will hang in a cluster from ribbon on the west & east walls in my kitchen, replacing all of the decorative plates currently on display.
