There are two definitions for custard glass in the glass world - one is a glass item for holding custard, the other is a type of glass as described in the Glass Encyclopedia here - hope that helps. Neither definition seems to apply to the item in this topic though! :)

;D  thanks.   -  this piece has done well for a varied amount of descriptive association  .............  flower frog, opaline, vaseline, custard.           This one would obviously hold custard, but then most shapes with a cavity of sorts would do the same so seems zero mileage in that direction.            How are we qualifying the use of the word opaline  -  it isn't simply opaque coloured glass.
