Just like before, the desktop image uses a white background with a handwritten calendar for the month, and I've added the most important moon phases too: ○ full moon & ● new moon.

So here you have a picture of white translucent glass that is sometimes referred to as milk glass or "opaline" (milk glass can also refer to transparent glass with a thin layer of white glass). It was incredibly sought after in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco period for its opalescence and color shifts, reminding of opal gemstones and moonstones. One artist that is typically associated with it is René Lalique, who trained as a goldsmith and became a glass artist; a quick search on "Lalique + opalescent" gives you an indication of his range.
