Today's WORD-A-DAY: OPALINE GLASS


Produced in France throughout the 19th century, Opaline glass was influenced by 16th century Venetian glass and 18th century Bristol glass. Opaline glass has an opaque or slightly translucent quality, and was made either in white or in shades of green, blue, pink, black, purple and yellow, and often gilt-decorated and fitted with bronze mounts. Classified as a semi-crystal because of its high lead content, all opaline glass is hand-blown, and therefore has no mold-lines.
