The popularity of glass items, especially those made of milk glass, spurred the creation of many glass manufacturing companies in the United States, France, and England during the mid-1800s. These companies produced milk glass products that were used as tableware, bowls, covered dishes, specialty items, vases, and figurines.
Milk glass is an opaque or translucent milky white or colored glass, blown or pressed into a wide variety of shapes.
First made in Venice in the 16th century, colors included blue, pink, yellow, brown, black, and the white – which lead to its popularity.
How to clean White Milk Glass:
