Milk-white is an opal glass, created for the first time in Murano in the early 15th century in order to imitate porcelains, which were very renowned in Europe in those times. This particular type of color is obtained by overlapping transparent colors to the Milk-white one. Sometimes it is possible to add
some gold leaves in order to obtain the “Aurati” vases.
