Look at Those Prices!
Today, this green milk glass dinnerware is highly collectible and sold at premium prices. Jade-ite is hard to find, but not impossible by any means. If you’re willing to pay the price, it’s available on eBay, and if you’re up for doing
a little, a lot of thrift or antique shopping, you just might get lucky. These are a couple of my bargain pieces found here in Phoenix.
Jade-ite dinnerware was nothing fancy back in the day, it was often a giveaway promotional item offered at grocery stores. In other words, it was cheap, and never meant to be worthy of the extravagant prices it holds today. I must say though, my Jade-ite collection is 62 years, or older, and still perfect with no chips or scratches. Can’t say that about my contemporary dinnerware. Hmmm, just sayin’.
