Amberina glass ranges in shades of light to dark red and sometimes fuchsia at the top to shades of light to darker amber at the bottom, or visa-versa in which case it is called reverse Amberina. It is created by mixing a compound including gold in the glass and reheating the object before it completely cools. The major producer of Amberina in the U.S. was the New England Glass Company, Toledo, Ohio, who patented the process in 1883 and thus prevented competitors from making the glass without a license. It's successor, the Libbey Glass Company made the glass in the 1890's.

This beautiful hand-blown Amberina tumbler is the rare inverted swirl pattern with the color shading from a deep cranberry red to gorgeous amber around the base. The tumbler measures 3 3/4" in height, 2 1/2" across the top and 2 1/4" across the base. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. A gorgeous piece of early Amberina with a wonderful bell-tone when gently tapped. A matching water pitcher is listed separately in my store.
