fire king glass

I'm really digging all the fire king mugs out there right now. Fire king glass also known as milk glass or jadeite was originally produced for every day use between the 1940's and 1979 made by the Anchor Hocking Glass Corporation. Some are collector items and can fetch more than $200 a piece and some hold very little value.

I love them for their milky color and bright retro patterns. Collecting them has become very trendy and many can be found on etsy and ebay or of course your local antique and thrift stores. This image was found on and is a great example of just a handful of designs out there.
