Vintage Milk Glass: Friday's Find #207


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Ready to see the fabulous thrift store finds of the week? Today it's all about vintage milk glass. Given my fondness for repurposing vintage vessels as bud vases, I couldn't wait to add blooms to this set of milk glass spice bottles...

Here's the same set, facing front with their lids. To get the look pictured above, simply turn the label side to face the back and remove the lids. Just be sure to check for any lingering spices before you add water and herbs or flowers.  Available

In the set of six bottles, four of them still have their original labels.

Some of the labels are a little more worn than others. The same is true of the lids.

Overall, the set is in very good condition. The bottoms and insides of the bottles are spotless and there are no chips on any of them. I'm more than happy to keep this pretty set on display until they sell ;) Available

I also found this single bottle in a different style. It's similar to a jadeite jar I have. This one still has the garlic salt which hasn't lost it's potent fragrance! It'll be getting a good cleaning. Don't you love the old label?

Here's how the other sides look.

Last but not least, a pretty hobnail vase and an unusual Oneida perfume decanter. I love the intricate raised design. The neck and stopper appear to be milk glass but the rest of the bottle has a frosted overlay. It still has the Oneida Crystal seal on the bottom but I couldn't find anything like it online, though I did come across some of their black crystal decanters. If anyone has any info on it, I'd love to know!

  4. Cecelia,
    I had to chuckle when I saw this post. My next post will feature a shelf in my Kitchen where I have a bunch of vintage and vintage reproduction things displayed. I recently received a set of vintage glass spice bottles with similar labels to the ones that are on the stunning milk glass ones you showcase here. I added mine to this shelf. I also have the same ones that you shared and I hope to use them to make snow men for the Holidays out of. I also received a few milk glass pieces from the same neighbor including a beautiful bowl and candlestick which I will be sharing a bit later on. We do have similar tastes!! LOL!! Great finds!!
    Hugs,
    Deb

  5. I love these! They create such a vintage feel for a kitchen. I have been finding a lot of milk glass lately and am so tempted to keep it all.

  7. I'm sure glad you all don't live in Maine, caz there'd be no milk glass left for me! Your garlic salt bottle is a part of a set of 10-12 spice bottles on a 2 tier rack. In Maine, they go for $55-90 which is why I don't own one yet! Often the lids and rack are red; I don't think I've seen yellow before. I have never seen the decanter. I love to spend $5-7 on my pieces. but I do splurge now and again. Got a 1890's looking candy jar(?) with lid last for $6 at GW. I don't care for the "skim mik" looking stuff--often cheap unless it's got opalescence to it--the old stuff! Hard to beat Fenton, Westmoreland, and Imperial!
