Vitrock Rocks

It took me a lot of years of collecting to acquire all of these! Vitrock by Hocking Glass Company. Tea canisters and shakers, all with their original lids, some with original labels, some with replacement labels. (I had very bad luck with replacement lids - they did not screw on and off easily AT ALL):
I finally got a good deal on a Drippings jar with an original (albeit faded) label. And I love my deco ashtray (though I don't smoke, nor do we allow it in our home) - I even found a silver and black matchbook, so it would fit right in with the silver and black deco-look labels on the other pieces!
I use my juicer all the time- works great for lemons, then I just pour the juice through a little strainer to separate the seeds. The lid on the little covered dish is very similar to the Drippings jar lid.
And then, last but not least, the mixing bowls in three sizes:
I love the bright white of the glass, and I was naturally attracted to the labels on the shakers and canisters, with my love of silver and black art deco designs.
Just another of my favorite collections.

Ooh - Delphite is SO gorgeous! I started my Jadite collection about 33 years ago, but I never started on Delphite, even though I loved it, too. I guess I did know I couldn't have everything - and it's WAY out of my budget now. I'm just glad I started collecting back when I did!

Fantastic collection! I love those shakers. I've thought about starting a similar collection but so far I've resisted.
