More New Delphite
More shapes are being made in opaque blue glass similar to what vintage collectible glass collectors call Delphite. One shape on the market is this covered tub-shape with "Butter" in black lettering on the front. The same shape in blue glass has also been sold with "Drippings" on the front.
Similar kitchen shapes are also being made in opaque green glass, or jadite, with similar lettering. Both green and blue pieces are relatively inexpensive. The butter dish shown here sold for $10 in green and blue. Shakers, spice jars, cruets and other shapes range from $8 to $20.
