Jeannette Glass Co. Iris & Herringbone Vase

3 Dec


Manufactured by Jeannette Glass Co. during the depression, this is a lovely example of the Iris & Herringbone pattern on a 9″ high  milk glass vase, flashed in a jade colour on the outside.  This was rescued from a dump in an area where there are a lot of cottagers.  Fortunately a good friend of mine who lived in the area spotted it and knew that I would appreciate having it.  They are typically found in iridescent, clear or white milk glass and sometimes found in amberina as well.  Pink ones are rare but do exist.

    i know very little about milk glass (have never seen it in australia) so this is fascinating to me. i am also impressed that you have trained your friends so well as to have them find things for you! i

      There is a lot of milk glass in Canada and the US. Most of what I find dates to the depression and later and not considered rare, but milk glass has been around since the 1500’s and older milk glass is quite collectible and valuable. The term milk glass came into being during the 19th century. It really just means any opaque glass and was made in many different colours.

      The green Iris & Herringbone vase would be valued at approx. $45. The irridescent ones are selling on ebay for about $30 and this colour is rarer.
