I use my milk glass in addition to displaying it. I fell in love with the rough, textured surface of Westmoreland's Maple Leaf pattern, but had no intentions of collecting white milk glass. I learned that this pattern was available in other colors, so I decided that I would only collect colored Maple Leaf glass.

When a friend presented me with a piece of Westmoreland Maple Leaf, a simple white milk glass rose bowl that he had in his possession that he no longer wanted, I still had no intentions of collecting white milk glass. It was common and I didn’t want to have just a common collection. Colored Maple Leaf….that’s what I was sure I was collecting.

But now I had this handsome white Rose Bowl and I had just seen some other white bramble on eBay that was appealing and very inexpensive. I bought a couple of white pieces from eBay and when I put all of the white Maple Leaf milk glass pieces together they made a very pretty collection. "Oh," I thought to myself, “I’ll collect the white milk glass just so that I can actually use it.”

Within a couple months I had 15 pieces of Westmoreland Maple Leaf white milk glass. I haven’t given up looking for colored pieces; I am slowly adding those to my collection as I can find/afford them. Those pics will come in another post.

    nice WG Maple Leaf collection; the WG shelf supports are a nice touch too. I love using my collection too.

    Sorry for my ignorance in glass, but is this 'opalin' glass? It looks very nice against the dark wood in the picture to the right. Very nice!

    Opaline seams to be the word I was asking about.

    WG called it milk glass. Generally milk glass is opaque and opaline glass has some translucence.
