    I thought I was pretty much over my milk glass phase but this 10" footed console bowl was too nice to pass up. Made by the Jeanette Glass Co. in Jeanette PA around 1950 , it was part of their Cameo glass line. This is called Lombardi and was made in a few colors. The most popular was a shell pink version created by mixing the milk glass with a hint of rose. This is just a pure white version but still very appealing -Mike-

    History of the Jeanette Glass Co.:
    vintageglassshop.com/jeannette-glass
    Jeannette Glass Company was first known as Jeannette Bottle Works. The plant is situated in Jeannette, Pennsylvania and began its operation back in the year 1887.
    The glass company stretched its production to prism glasses in 1917. This product had relatively high demands for both commercial and residential structures to increase light exposure, minimize use of electric-powered lights, and add a classy style. However, this branch of the company was sold during the mid-1920s. And during this period, extensive improvements were made in the factory, including its conversion into a pressed glass facility.
    The firm created fourteen collectible Depression glass patterns from the year 1928 until 1938, that’s a decade in count. Included in these lines are Adam, Cherry Blossom, Doric, Doric and Pansy, Floral, Iris, Hex Optic, Cube (aka Cubist), Sierra, Sunflower, Windsor, Swirl, Homespun and Sunburst.
    In the 1950s, the Jeannette Glass Company brought in the Cameo Glassware for the production of milk glasses and related products. Perhaps the most popular is the Shell Pink line. This incorporated different patterns and shapes to create a pale pink milk glass with a tint of rose. In the mid-1940s, after World War II, they purchased the McKee Glass Division of Thatcher Glass Manufacturing. By the year 1970, the company came to be known as Jeannette Corporation. However, 1983 was a very unfortunate year for the company as they came to their closure and the factory ceased all production.
