German term or phrase: lackiertes Glas
Hello all,

This is from a description of a table. One of the finishes for the tabletop is "lackiertes Glas". Googling "painted glass", however, brings up a lot of stained-glass-type stuff, whereas I imagine the table to have more of a "frosted glass" type look. One of the other options for the tabletop is "frosted glass", though, so that's not it.

Has anyone come across the term "painted glass" used in furniture, or is it called something different?

Thanks a lot!

Explanation:
tables can have lacquered glass tops

"painted" to me would sound as though there's a painting on it
