A Second Teacup Story

A second current ‘favorite’ teacup is one I found last Monday when my sister and I were looking at a display of teacups and saucers at the consignment shop.




I had never found a teacup and saucer of milkglass before, so I gladly snapped it up. It has its label which reads "Westmoreland Glass/ Authentic Milkglass/ Hand Made"



The pattern is named "Paneled Grape" and is embossed with a grape pattern on both the cup and the scalloped-edge saucer.


This cup and saucer is a welcome addition to my milk glass collection.

I've never seen a milk glass cup and saucer before either. It's very pretty. Have you ever noticed how the 'stickers' on milk glass items seem to be meant to 'stay' on the glass forever? I leave them on mine just like everyone else does. . .but I wonder. . .why do we do it?

Oh I love it. Maybe its a new england thing, but I adore milkglass. My mother did too. I have a piece of westmoorland, its a covered candy dish.
If you want to take the sticker off of milkglass, just smear some mayo on it, let it set for a couple hours and then scrape it off with your fingernail !

That is so pretty: there is just something about milk glass that is so attractive. Maybe it's the texture.
