Jade-ite and more!

I found three of these little darlings and loved their creamy color. They're marked "Corex" made in Canada. (that would have been the Corning Glassware plant in Leaside, Toronto.) For my American friends, they're made off the U.S. Cremax pattern, and are very similar to Piecrust in design. Production began in 1948

Then I spotted Jade-ite! I had no idea if it was real or fake, but they looked old and were the right color . They were also available in a Forest Green glass, but they looked nicer in the jade. I picked the best ones they had and made like a bandit to the Goodwill cashier.

According to my trusty reference book "Fire King and More" by Gene Florence, they're called Fire King Jade-ite Leaf and Blossom set. Worth a pretty penny too, so I did well!

I also found these beautiful green vintage goblets to match my Depression Glass.

Not bad, all of these for $20!

(Merry Christmas to me!)


  1. Oh how pretty....yep u did good on the jadeite!

  2. Speechless...

    Okay, I caught my breath. IF this is what it's like thrifting in Canada, I'm catching the next train up!

    I haven't heard of any Leaf Blossom being reproduced, so I think you've got the real thing there.

    The Corex is beeeeautiful! Thanks for the info too.

    Can't wait to see your green glass bowl ;)

  3. Oh yessss! Totally delicious! I love that FireKing jadeite but my total FAVE is the Corex. You did real good! Yay for thrifting in Canada!

  4. They are so nice and delicate! Very nice bargain!

  5. My favorite is the jade-ite. How lucky can you be!!!! Jade-ite is SO hard to find!

  6. I am so incredibly jealous! Great find.
