The language of vintage: "Jadeite"

Jadeite is a green glass dish-ware most commonly made in the 1930's and 40's.  Typically women would receive a free item in a common grocery box such as oats or flour.  Today, these dishes can be highly collectible and fetch a high price.  The most common brand is "Fire-King" by Anchor Hocking, but there are a couple of other brands that were popular at the time as well.  Also, I collect Jadeite...So if you are looking to sell some, send me an email at Nicolioso@gmail.com
