Sour Cream Glasses

There are times when I feel just like Rip Van Winkle. I seem to have missed huge periods of time when items were prevalent in homes and I was sleeping.

I have just discovered sour cream glasses. (lots for sale on eBay)

I can honestly say that I do not ever remember sour cream sold in glass. As far back as I can remember sour cream has always been sold in the same plastic containers that you find in the grocery store now. (these lovelies still have their lids)

Of course now I am obsessed with them. Barbara Mauzy has even authored a book on the glasses. Here are some more and more.

I really think I would like to take a class on glassware and pottery. I want to learn about all the different types of glasses and pottery and how to identify them. Looking for sour cream glasses led me to peanut butter glass.

I was a bit more familiar with these. Of course, these are decorative glasses that held different brands of peanut butter. Look at the price for this peanut butter glass. WOW!!!
