Milk glass was produced around 300 years before it reached the height of its popularity, which began around 1870 and lasted through the early 20th century. When it came to milk glass, the French were the trendsetters, ushering it into its golden era and inspiring American glassmakers to follow suit. Today French milk glass is particularly valuable.
Emulating the French, well-to-do American families stocked up on milk glass dinnerware, serving dishes, and pitchers. The pieces, some bedecked with diamond-cut patterns, molded with latticework, or artfully painted, made a splash in turn-of-the-century America and remained popular until the days of the Great Depression. They came back into vogue during the 1960s thanks to the production of Hobnail milk glass.
The Vintage Milk Glass Bubble Bowl by Anchor Hocking is a classic design to be treasured for years to come. Featuring a scalloped top edge comprising of bubbles that circle the bowls surface, starting at approximately 1 inch in size graduating down in size to about ¾ of an inch, this monogram pattern continues onto the bottom of the bowl ending in a starburst pattern or "Bulls eye" and is perfect for condiments, olives, individual servings of rice or ice cream.
First introduced in the early 1940's, the "Bubble + Bull's eye" design was in production until the late 1960's, and is now commonly known as the Bubble pattern, applied across a variety of different serveware, including matching sugar & creamer sets, dishes, bowls and many other items. This classic pattern is as popular today as when it was first introduced.
