Orphaned comment stuck at the top[edit]

"Milk glass will often glow under an ultraviolet (UV) light source, [...] due to the reflection [...]"

Something in the glass is fluorescing. UV light cannot be viewed by our eyes simply by reflection. White clothing glows because of optical brighteners (fluorescent dyes) in washing powder. 88.107.17.16 (talk) 06:42, 25 February 2008 (UTC)Robert Lamont

Major copy edit. Sections. Wording. Structure. Unsourced flag.[edit]

I did a good bit of work. The article still has no citations. Please check for errors. Hopefully, I did not introduce any, but I did a lot of copywork, and killed a few things, like the ebay reference.sinneed (talk) 01:40, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Added a couple of sources[edit]

Prompted by an editor changing "nofootnotes" to "unreferenced". There is still much OR here and some of this is just wrong... the glass is not always opaque, some collectors are interested in the translucent pieces. Once source that is too chinchy to give out a preview has that in it. *grumbles*- sinneed (talk) 02:32, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Good work, keep at it. Used to have an antique store and handled quite a bit of milk glass. Always considered the more "translucent" pieces to be "newer white glass" and not as desirable; the translucence gave them a bluish look and they were "cheaper" to get at auction. Of course that's all OR :-) ... may still have some glass books , somewhere. Cheers, Vsmith (talk) 02:47, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
"Good work, keep at it." - sorry, not interested at all. I was lured here by a friend complaining about WP, applied the editorial hatchet.- sinneed (talk) 03:00, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
Also, idly, since the point is moot... Nofootnotes was really the correct template, due to the ELs... "This article includes a list of references, related reading or external links, but its sources remain unclear because it lacks inline citations. Please improve this article by introducing more precise citations where appropriate."- sinneed (talk) 03:01, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
