|strikethrough textRandall milk glass is a type of opaque glass that was produced by the American glass manufacturer Randall.
History & Description
Randall was a glass manufacturing company based in America during the twentieth century which solely produced milk glass products.
Milk glass is either a translucent or opaque milky white colour glass that has been blown or pressed into a wide range of shapes and forms.
Milk glass was first produced in the sixteenth century in Venice yet the term milk glass is relatively new. During the nineteenth century, glass makers coined this type of milky white, opaque glass as opal glass. The white colour is due to the addition of an opacifer such as bone ash or tin dioxide during the glass making process.
