From the China Cabinet: Peachy Keen Dish


Some might consider me a certified dish and glassware hoarder, but one type of lovely glassware I’ve never collected is milk glass. I didn’t realize milk glass originated in Venice, but that makes sense, what with all the other types of gorgeous glass Italy is known for. I saw this little lidded dish at a wonderful shop recently and for just $50, I thought it was a great deal. Alas, I didn’t bring it home with me…but I’m sure someone will snatch it up soon.

If you’re interested in starting a milk glass collection, check flea markets and rummage sales…I frequently run across pieces at a reasonable price. Any current collectors out there?
