Milk Glass

Milk glass is a term that was originally used to describe opaque white glassware. It has since become used to include several colours of opaque and translucent glass, including white, blue, green, pink, black, yellow and brown. The origins of Milk glass begin in Venice in the 16th Century, when it was then known as "Opal" glass. This section of our shop focuses on pressed Milk glass produced during the Victorian era and later, by British manufacturers Sowerby, Davidson and Greener, French makers Vallerysthal and Portieux, and USA companies such as Westmoreland and Fenton.
