Ever wondered what people did before the invention of tupperware? The answer is jadeite.
This early twentieth-century invention that was used to store precious supplies during the Depression in America and designed to stack in mid-century refrigerators has come full circle and reproductions seem to be cropping up everywhere. However, it’s the original, vintage collections that are in high demand. The glass is thick and heavy and made to last, which it has; whole collections have survived without even a chip as it is so sturdy.
I love the colour, which became popular in contrast to the Victorian florals. It would make a lovely accent colour for any kitchen or dresser. I’m thinking of starting me a collection. What do you think?
