Hobknob Milk Glass Ice Bucket / Flower Pot
Size: Approximately 6" high
Condition: Excellent

Milk glass is an opaque or translucent, milky white glass blown or pressed into a wide variety of shapes. First made in Venice in the 16th century, and popularized in the United States during the 1930's and 1940's. 19th-century glass makers called milky white opaque glass "opal glass". The name milk glass is relatively recent. The white color is achieved through the addition of an opacifier, e.g. tin dioxide or bone ash.

Made into decorative dinnerware, lamps, vases, and costume jewelry, milk glass was highly popular during the fin de siecle. Pieces made for the wealthy of the Gilded Age are known for their delicacy and beauty in pattern and form, while Depression glass pieces of the 1930s and 1940s are more utilitarian and simplified in design.

Shipping price reflects the following:
* Heavier weight of sturdy ceramic items
* Packaging materials (e.g., bubble wrap)
* Carefully hand-wrapping + packing so your purchase gets to you safe and sound. :)
