Milk glass collecting is one of those magpie phenomenons that seems to rear its head every few years. I have friends with serious collections and i know others who’ve just got into it, either way, they’re all obsessed.
You’ll find milk glass examples in junk shops, at markets and if you’re lucky, in charity shops and you’ll know it for its milky appearance in an array of (mostly pastel) colours and of course white. You get quite elaborate milk glass vessels, bowls and tableware but personally i prefer the examples that are from the Great Depression era – very simple shapes, often interesting ridges and decorative details on the outside of the vessel and always the glorious pastel and white shades.
Here’s Donna’s beautiful selection…

DIY brides, milk glass is a gorgeous way to make a decorative statement on your wedding day and it looks great in any home environment – just think how nice a collection would look next to these gorgeous pastel Le Creuset pots on an open shelf in your kitchen?
