Wow! The week has started with gusto…boys are back at school and I am back into the daily creative process that is, Marley & Lockyer…I did get to have a quick stop off for a little treasure hunt, and found these beauties
Opalware is the very first form of Pyrex and a form of milk glass. This is what it started out as, before Pyrex took over the brand in the 50’s. It was then made mainly for restaurants and commercial serving. That utilitarian side of these pieces I think is beautiful. I have been lucky enough to have found these pieces…I wasn’t looking…
Once upon a time it had a gold rim, which is typical for these pieces. I prefer it without. The plate has a simple diamond pattern which is beautiful.
The ‘Jobling Opalware made in England’ makers mark is no longer seen.
I was actually on the lookout for entirely different pieces, but picked these two up for a few dollars each. I may have to keep an eye out for more white treasures like this now.
…all in all it was a great treasure hunting day.
