Below is a white Milk Glass Glove Box from Frannie Ellerbee's personal collection. She has the most wonderful shop on Etsy at Etsy.com/shop/FrannieBee if you want to check out her offerings.
First made in Venice in the 16th century, milk glass is an opaque or translucent glass whose colors include (but are not limited to) blue, pink, yellow, brown, black, and the white that led to its popular name. It is commonly called milk glass as it is most commonly found in a milky white color. This glove box has a wonderful embossed design along the top, edges and sides.
Frannie also contributed this beautiful Dithridge hand painted glove box and dresser set from the late 1800s to early 1900s. It is a hand painted milk glass glove box, tray and box. It is available in her Etsy shop.
