Glass / Re: Small Milk Glass Dish - 18th Century?
« Last post by flying free on Today at 10:30:51 AM »
the Lauscha museum link is working again :)

I've used google to translate their comment regarding Beinglas - (it translates Bein to leg instead of bone)

'Beginning of the 18th century, Friedrich Böttger found out the composition of the porcelain in Dresden and fired vessels. Coffee and tea from porcelain wares from now on the most sought after luxury objects at the European courts.

The Venetians had Beinglas (ital. Lattimo) since the 16th century in use. To create the milky haze, they put the mixture lead, Zinnodix, bone (calcium fluoride phosphate) or Hirschhorn to allocate funds.

With the intention to imitate porcelain, now melted some huts leg Thuringian glass. Documented the cabins are an ice 1711 Henriettenthal 1720 Lauscha 1735 Ilmenau 1737th

With the widespread use of porcelain in the late 18th century, interest in the Beinglas fell asleep again.'

I'm just adding this for reference in case I forget -
I think there is a possibility my flask could also be Flühli-Glas - possibly.

There are remarkable similarities between the enamelling on some pieces I've found but finding a milchglas flask is quite difficult. The depiction of the lady has similarities though with one or two I've found in clear glass.

Here are two examples of opalglas or milchglas flasks  (scroll down to second picture)

Welcome to the board. We have image help here:,6522.0.html but shout if get stuck. :)
I've not, myself, had any Kosta glass bearing this label that dates to before the early-mid 1970s.

But that might just be a quirk of chance.

Hi welcome to the board. This is a replica of an old glass as sold in museums. There are several manufacturers of these: Bon in Murano always signs "bon"; the Czechs do not. There is also a lesser known Swedish firm on the market.
Maybe you get lucky on this site

It's not a Thomas Webb one, but unfortunately every man and his dog made/makes lampwork. It doesn't look Lauscha/Bimini to me either
