FOOTNOTE: The development of Cranberry Glass is arguably the greatest achievement within the realm of coloured glass. This fabulous glass, first appeared circa 1630, and was the discovery of Johann Kunckel, a German chemist of the period. Its formation was produced by the addition of Gold Chloride being added to a clear crystal batch. Modern-day examples have replaced this with copper however the early pieces such as offered here can contain as much one imperial ounce of gold. Rubinglas, as the name suggests is Ruby glass, which by its own definition contains even more true carat gold. The high costs involved to produce these items lead to Cranberry glass adaption, for it used far less gold to produce whilst also allowing for more translucency and affordability to the masses.
Cranberry glass, also allows for more delicacy and control of depth of colour, which of course is to its advantage, as it has provided amazing varieties which are now enjoyed and cherished by collectors of this wonderful glass.
Master Glass Blowers at Stourbridge, England, were unquestionably the finest producers of the period anywhere in the world with such velocity, paired with quality of their era.
Factories such as Stevens & Williams, Thomas Webb, Richardson and also Stuart etc. produced the finest of cranberry glass in the world.
The glassworks of America which produced this glass variety were mainly in New England. This also so happens to be where cranberries are grown and so then (just as now) and never short of a good idea when it comes to marketing, the term "Cranberry Glass" was coined, for it describes its beautiful colour so very well.
