In the third quarter of the 17th century, French, German and Bohemian glassmakers developed formulae, such as Johann Kunckel's 1679 recipe for opal glass, to produce an opaque white glass - "milchglas" - that imitated white porcelain or china. "Glass china" was an early 19th century term for what is is currently called "milk glass".
