Collections : Vintage Milk Glass

Ideas on how to display a collection of vintage milk glass pieces.

I absolutely love vintage milk glass. I have a small collection of retro hobnail vases and trivets. I often use them as vases for fresh cut flowers or as a bowl for a dip, however, I think they would look lovely displayed on their own. Above are a few great ideas on how to display milk glass, or any vintage glass collections. What do you collect? How do you display it?

  1. I love milk glass too! I’ve found that my favorite place to buy it is at estate sales because you can often get it for under $5 for most pieces. I recently got a lattice-edged serving bowl (not really sure how to describe it)that I have sitting on our bookshelves for now. I love the stark contrast of the white milk glass and dark shelves. Maybe I’ll find some brightly colored fruit to go in it.
