Milk Glass Interesting Facts


Milk Glass Candle

I wanted to share with you my passion for Milk Glass, or Opaque Glass, as it's also known. This type of glassware has held a special place in my heart for years πŸ’—. It's recognizable by its creamy, milky white appearance, and you'll often see it crafted into stunning decorative pieces like vases, bowls, and figurines 🏺.

What's fascinating to me is that Milk Glass was originally created to imitate the highly sought-after Chinese porcelain of the 18th century. European glassmakers began producing their own version of porcelain, which turned out to be less fragile and more affordable, giving birth to the beautiful Milk Glass we know today.

Another quirky fact that I adore is that Milk Glass was actually used in the early 20th century to make electrical insulators ⚑, due to its impressive resistance to heat and electricity.

As a collector and avid lover of all things vintage, Milk Glass is my go-to when it comes to transforming glassware into candles πŸ•―οΈ. These pieces not only bring elegance to any room but also create a mesmerizing and unique lighting experience ✨.

In my shop, you'll find a curated selection of Milk Glass vessels that I've lovingly turned into candles. From vases to candy dishes, these Milk Glass candles truly add a touch of vintage charm to your home decor. They're not just gorgeous to look at, but they also hold a piece of history and make for an intriguing conversation starter.πŸ’•
