Animal Covered Dishes Made in New Jadite
The number of molds used to produce new Jadite keeps expanding. Animal covered dishes from molds originally owned by Westmoreland Glass were put back in production. A number of these molds have various Westmoreland marks which are included in the new pieces. The new Jadite shows opalescence around the edges similar to many old pieces.
Jadite, a generic term for pale green opaque glass, was not in wide use until the late 1920s. Virtually no original covered animal dishes made before 1900 were ever produced in Jadite.
