More Jadite Kitchen Glass
This new 6-inch opaque green glass, or jadite, canister was found in a Midwest antique mall. The cylindrical shaped bodies are covered with a dome shaped lid. "TEA" in raised molded letters is on the front. A second matching canister was marked "COFFEE."
Vintage jadite was made by several American glass companies from the 1930s through the 1950s. No pre-1960s jadite canisters like these are known.
