For the Love of Jadeite


Cathie Caldwell’s collection of jadeite leaves other seekers green with envy.

When Cathie Caldwell started collecting jadeite 38 years ago, she had no idea how fun and addictive her attraction to this cheery green glassware would become. What started as a simple interest soon became a quest. With a collection that now boasts close to a thousand pieces—along with two vintage trucks painted in the signature color—Cathie has earned the affectionate title of “The Jadeite Queen.”
