What "glass mottled with age" is like? How does it look? Could you give a link to a photo? Or describe?

She went to the nearest window—the glass was mottled with age, bulging in the bottoms of the panes like a slow liquid.

"Afterworlds" by Scott Westerfeld

These examples from web:

In the corner, amongst the old buckets and mops, leaned a full length mirror, its glass mottled with age spots.
These are square and rectangular, of varying sizes, some as small as six inches square, all in battered gilt frames, the glass mottled with age.
The mirror came from an antiques shop on Portobello Road. The frame is gilded finials and flourishes, the glass mottled with age.
