The Fostoria Glass Company was very proud of their milk glass, and they made their pieces by hand … just like antique originals. The American Bud Vases that were produced in milk glass have a soft and mellow look to them. Peach milk glass specimens are quite beautiful, consisting of fine quality and a porcelain-like finish.
The Fostoria American 6″ Flared Bud Vase was primarily made in clear crystal; however, they were also produced in a small assortment of milk glass colors – such as Aqua, White and Peach. While there are certainly one-of-a-kinds, whimsies, and/or sample pieces in existence, the most commonly produced American milk glass items are the following:
- Footed Bud Vase, Flared – 6″
- Footed Bud Vase, Flared – 8½”
- Square Footed Vase – 9″
- Topper Ash Tray
- Topper – 2½”
- Topper – 3″
- Topper – 4″
- Wedding Bowl and Cover
White milk glass pieces are the easiest to locate, as they were produced for a longer period of time. The Peach and Aqua colors are a bit more difficult to find, as they were only produced from 1957 through 1959.
