    I love this piece because the milk glass has a old quality to it that I haven't seen in any other pieces I have found. I am still trying to find out the pattern name and manufacturer. I was just walking through a thrift store and there is was! Love it!

      Vallérysthal Portieux #3790 compote from 1907 catalog. It's not unusual to not find names for patterns in catalogs, as many maker simply assigned numbers to their wares.

      TallCakes, thank you so much! Can anyone suggest one or two good reference books for Milk Glass?

      here is a link with short reviews on some glass book relative to 'pattern glass' including a couple specific to milk glass. Time involved studying glass is the best teacher.
