1960s John C. Virden Ceiling Fixture

White Glass Lamps, Fixtures, Decor, OH MY

Do you know the difference between milk glass and white glass? I’ve been reading a lot about it. If you look up the difference between the two, white glass vs. milk glass, you get the actual reasons as to why they’re different or at least what makes milk glass, milk glass. The only thing I think I get, is the fact certain companies from days past were known for their milk glass. Here are the various websites I visited to find out information.

I also know it just takes experience and learning more and more about things as you go along. Until then, I usually put a question mark in the title of my listing…milk? glass. Actually, anything I’m not sure of I’ll put a question mark after it. Really though, if I like something and it fits in with my non-existent style, I’ll display it. Doesn’t matter the details most times. It sometimes doesn’t even matter the condition.

Take this little statue for example. I grew up with it in my home and I’ve always loved it. It lost its head and hand at one point and my parents just glued it back on. I’m so incredibly happy they “fixed” it, kept it, and recently gave it to me. Cracks and all.
